Adding dependent files in VS 2012

Since my Web Workbench extension is messed up, I'm having issues adding CoffeeScript (.coffee) files with their dependent .js equivalents. The solution seems to be as easy as installing an extension.
As per answers on Stack Overflow (link), VSCommands for Visual Studio 2012 (link) enables managing dependent files through GUI rather than having to manually edit the project file (.csproj) and reload the project in IDE.
The way it works with VSCommands is to select .coffee and .js files, right-click, and select "Group Items" option, then select the parent item. Neat.
