    Simple question but I'm considering hari-kari:

    I created a CustomControl starting from a c# Web Control Library
    Project. I immediately compiled it in Release mode without touching a
    line of code. Next, I went to another instance of VS.NET where I have
    a web page up in design mode. I went to the Toolbox, selected
    CustomizeToolbox, and browsed to add my new WebControlLibrary1.dll.

    moved the mouse over the designer was the "cannot drop here" icon.

    Any ideas? Why can't I drop a plain vanilla custom control onto the
