Add Main Menu item to ACT! for Windows, with sub items?


I've been able to add the new main menu item, but I also want subitems on that new menu.  using the "standard" AddMenuItem code from the early samples, which I use for all other menu additions, is unsuccessful.
 
This is my code to add the Main Menu item:
================================================
Public Sub AddMenu _
    ( _
        ByVal urn As String, _
        ByVal MenuText As String, _
        Optional ByVal Handler As Act.UI.CommandHandler = Nothing)
    Dim NewMenu As Act.UI.Core.CommandBarButton
    Dim ParentMenu As Act.UI.Core.CommandBar
 
    'Only one instance should exist, so remove any that are left hanging around
    If (MenuItemExists(urn) = True) Then
        RemoveMenuItem(urn)
    End If
 
    ParentMenu = ACTAPP.Explorer.CommandBarCollection("Connected Menus")
    NewMenu = New Act.UI.Core.CommandBarButton(MenuText, "", Nothing, "", "",
        Act.UI.Core.CommandBarControl.ItemDisplayStyle.TextOnly, False)
 
    ParentMenu.ControlCollection.Add(NewMenu)
    ACTAPP.RegisterCommand(urn, Nothing, Act.UI.RegisterType.Shell)
 
End Sub
==========================================

What am I missing?  I just want it in the mainmenu collection so that I can put menu items under it.
 
Thanks in advance,
Geoff
