How to add a virtual folder by using JScript RRS feed

  • Question

  •         I want to implement  add a virtual folder on a existing vc project. My code as follows:

    var item = null;
    var folderName = "MyFolder";
    try {
       // attempt to retrieve the existing folder as a project item
       item = vcProject.ProjectItems.Item(folderName);
    } catch (e) {
       // something prevented us from getting the folder
       item = null;
    if (item == null) {
       item = vcProject.ProjectItems.AddFolder(folderName);
           a error occurred, the errpr tip is : Object doesn't support this action. it means vcProject.ProjectItems doesn't support AddFolder this method.

    My environment: VisualStudio 2013, Win 7 + sp1 64 bit
