I have this code
(project is type of VSProject2)
string itemPath = currentSolution.GetProjectItemTemplate("ScreenTemplate.zip", "csproj"); project.Project.ProjectItems.AddFromTemplate(itemPath, name); project.Project.Save();
for creating a project item for my solution, but it creates the item in the root of the project. Is there any way to create the item in a project's subfolder created using the
project.ProjectItems.AddFolder("Screens");? Thanks for help!

project.ProjectItems is the root project items so that is where things would get added. If you want to insert the item into a subfolder then you need to retrieve the subfolder first. Project items can represent folder, files or even virtual items. A physical folder in a C# project can be identified by the Kind value of vsProjectItemKindPhysicalFolder. Once you've found the folder's project item you can then add the template using the item's ProjectItems property. Note that I haven't verified this behavior so you might need to tweak it.

HOWTO: Navigate the files of a solution from a Visual Studio .NET macro or add-in.
