I'm looking to migrate (or integrate) my ASP.NET web applications  (to/with) MVC.

I found a blog that says adding references System.Web.Abstractions, System.Web.Routing and System.Web.MVC generates the MVC folder structure.
I added these references but they didn't generate the MVC folder structure required.

How can I get this done?
Thanks in advance.

You will have to create the folder structure.
Adding the references will prevent your project from failing to build.
Structure is your responsibility

Microsoft recently published an article about this topic here:

It's a bit complex, but I hope this information is helpful.

There is no way to have Visual Studio create the structure for you.
This article details how to migrate your code from web forms form to html driven simple form.
Also, Adding these references will not magically change your code from Webforms to MVC views and controllers nor it will cause visual studio to add the solution structure for you.

The article you read is for using a hybrid MVC/web forms application not for migrating applications from one to the other
