The following example shows how to remove a project from a solution.

Public Sub OnConnection(ByVal application As Object, _
 ByVal connectMode As ext_ConnectMode, ByVal addInInst As Object, _
 ByRef custom As Array) Implements IDTExtensibility2.OnConnection
    _applicationObject = CType(application, DTE2)
    _addInInstance = CType(addInInst, AddIn)
End Sub

Sub SolnRemoveExample(ByVal dte As DTE2)
    ' This add-in removes a project from a solution.
    ' Open a solution that contains at least one project 
    ' in Visual Studio
    ' before running this add-in.

    Dim soln As Solution2 = CType(dte.Solution, Solution2)
    Dim proj As Project = soln.Projects.Item(1)

        ' Delete the first project in the solution. 
        MsgBox("Ready to delete the project.")
        MsgBox("Project was deleted from the solution.")

        ' Close the solution from the IDE.
    Catch ex As SystemException
        MsgBox("ERROR: " & ex.ToString())
    End Try
End Sub
using System.Windows.Forms;
public void OnConnection(object application,
 Extensibility.ext_ConnectMode connectMode, object addInInst,
 ref System.Array custom)
    _applicationObject = (DTE2)application;
    _addInInstance = (AddIn)addInInst;
    // Pass the applicationObject member variable to the code example.

public void SolnOpenExample(DTE2 dte)
    // This add-in removes the first project from a solution.
    // Open a solution that contains at least one project before
    // running this example.
    Solution2 soln = (Solution2)_applicationObject.Solution;
    Project proj = soln.Projects.Item(1);
        // Delete the first project in the solution.
        MessageBox.Show("Ready to delete the project.");
        MessageBox.Show("Project was deleted from the solution.");
        // Close the solution from the IDE.
    catch (SystemException ex)
