I used a freely available User Control solution project as template to create a new User Control from scratch for myself. As far as I can see my project has everything important included when I compare it with the template project, but it seems like I did something fundamental wrong. When I hit Debug in the template project(Output Type is Class Library), VS runs a test application called UserControlTestContainer. When I hit Debug in my project VS simply shows the error "Output Type of Class Library cannot be started directly". The only thing I could imagine is that I eventually used the wrong Project template. When I want to create a new UserControl, is Windows Forms App the wrong choice?. Otherwise I really don't know the problem.
What I have tried:
Could it be that Windows Forms Control Library will be the correct Project type?
