If I am missing the resx file to a corresponding Control that I have the C# source code to, is there a way to regenerate it somehow?

Did you ever have it in the first place?  If so, you can use the resgen tool to recreate it using the .resources file (should be in your debug/bin directory).  

If you never had it in the first place, create an empty solution and add your *.cs file to it.  You should be able to compile get most of the stuff back.  Some things like images don't come back, but they are easy enought to add.

In my first choice, here is how you run resgen

The resgen is in the directory:
C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio .NET\FrameworkSDK\Bin\Resgen.exe

You run it like
> resgen inputfile.resources outputfile.resx

Works fine for me
