Well, it appears VS2012 has a bug that causes the .NET 3.5 Winforms designer to not be able to use controls targeted to the .NET 3.5 framework. I have seen this before, and I have found no information on what the **** is going on.
Edit: it only happens with 3rd party controls that are not part of the solution. Sometimes. Other times it works.
Been using VS 2010 (VB) for a few months now. One quirk is that it occasionally creates new event handlers for all the controls in a form even though I've already coded them. The mostly likely scenario for this to happen is when I delete a control. Doesn't happen too often and existing code isn't affected. But it is annoying to see all that new code at the bottom of the screen.
From what I have gathered, it seems to be a framework detection error of some sort. (i.e. VS cannot determine what framework a library is built for unless it is in the solution, and it defaults to 4.5)
Still a lot of large companies clinging to XP. I liked it a lot and still have an old XP machine tucked away. But sooner or later you have to move on. I ditched XP for Win7 a few months ago. Win8 ain't gonna happen at Burkhart's house.
created a .NET3.5 winform project and library, created a user control in the library, used it in the web form app, no problem!!!

My programs never have bugs, they just develop random features.
