' add reference to Microsoft.VisualStudio.VCProjectEngine
Imports EnvDTE
Imports Microsoft.VisualStudio.VCProjectEngine

Public Module Module1
    Sub Main()
        Dim idx, idx2 As Integer
        Dim prj As VCProject
        Dim mycollection As IVCCollection

        Dim myfile As VCFile
        Dim myfilter, myfilter2 As VCFilter
        Dim myitem, myitem2 As VCProjectItem
        Dim mycoll2 As IVCCollection

        prj = DTE.Solution.Projects.Item(1).Object
        mycollection = prj.Items

        ' mycollection.Count has number of items

        For idx = 1 To mycollection.Count
            myitem = mycollection.Item(idx)
            If myitem.Kind = "VCFile" Then
                myfile = myitem
                ' myfile.Name has name of file
                myfilter = myitem
                ' myfilter.Name has name of folder
                ' inner loop shows how to look at the members of a folder
                mycoll2 = myfilter.Items
                For idx2 = 1 To mycoll2.Count
                    myitem2 = mycoll2.Item(idx2)
                    If myitem2.Kind = "VCFilter" Then
                        myfilter2 = myitem2
                        ' myfilter2.Name has name of nested folder
                        myfile = myitem2
                        ' myfile.Name has name of nested file
                    End If
            End If
    End Sub
End Module
