There is only one file type that uses the .VCXITEMS extension:

VC++ Project Items File

VC++ Project Items File

A VCXITEMS file is a project used by Microsoft Visual Studio, a software development tool used to develop Windows programs and web applications. It contains one or more source code files, or items, that are referenced by multiple .VCXPROJ C++ projects in Visual Studio.

VCXITEMS files are not actual projects that can be compiled. They are only used to store items shared by actual VCXPROJ projects that can be compiled. You can add a reference to a VCXITEMS file by right-clicking the VCXPROJ project referencing the shared items in Visual Studio Solution Explorer and choosing Add → Reference → Shared Items.
