Error when adding a new MVC4 project to the solution

When trying to add a new MVC4 project to the solution, I received the following error message:

Cannot add the item because the item to add it to is not a solution folder or the solution

 

To fix this issue, go to tools/options, click Show all settings, and in projects and solutions, just check the “Always show solution” option. Now in the solution explorer, your project will appear under its parent solution.┬áThen you will successfully add a new MVC4 project to the same solution.
