    This is a bug in VS 2003 IDE. This most often happens when you have the project of the custom control in the same solution as the project you're using the custom control in, but not always. There is actually a patch to fix this problem, unfortunately the patch isn't publicly available, you have to call Microsoft and they will send you a link to download the patch and they will also supply you with the password so you can unzip the patch. We had to do this because our custom controls kept disappearing and the patch from Microsoft fixed everything for us.

    BTW, we didn't experience that exact error message that the link shows, regardless the patch still fixed our problem.

    The link doesn't work, or the patch doesn't work?
