Build error with generated language resx files

I generated resource files for usercontrols in a dedicated map. Now when I build, there is the 'object reference not set to an instance of an object' error that holds on a line with the meta:lblSomethingResource1.

When I remove that line, it shows the error for the next meta.

I tried with another web.config file that works for another site, but with no success.

the attached code is just an example of the first control. It happens with all controls.
<%@ Control Language="C#" AutoEventWireup="true" CodeFile="ucAnnounce.ascx.cs" Inherits="backoffice_userControls_ucAnnounce" %>
 
<asp:HyperLink ID="hlNew" runat="server" NavigateUrl="~/backoffice/EventAnounceEdit.aspx?filename=new&eventID=" Text="Nieuw bestand" meta:resourcekey="hlNewResource1" />
 
<asp:GridView ID="gvList" runat="server" AutoGenerateColumns="False" Width="90%" AlternatingRowStyle-BackColor="#EEEEEE" meta:resourcekey="gvListResource1">
    <Columns>
        <asp:TemplateField meta:resourcekey="TemplateFieldResource1">
            <ItemTemplate>
                <asp:HyperLink ID="hlPage" runat="server" Target="_blank" Text='<%# MakeFullURL(Convert.ToString(Eval("Name"))) %>' NavigateUrl='<%# MakeFullURL(Convert.ToString(Eval("Name"))) %>' meta:resourcekey="hlPageResource1" />
            </ItemTemplate>
        </asp:TemplateField>
        <asp:TemplateField meta:resourcekey="TemplateFieldResource2">
            <ItemTemplate>
                <asp:Label ID="lblName" runat="server" Visible="False" Text='<%# Eval("Name") %>' meta:resourcekey="lblNameResource1" />
                <asp:ImageButton ID="lbEdit" runat="server" ImageUrl="~/backoffice/images/icon_edit.gif" OnClick="lbEdit_Click" meta:resourcekey="lbEditResource1" />&nbsp;
                <asp:ImageButton ID="lbDelete" runat="server" ImageUrl="~/backoffice/images/icon_close.gif" OnClick="lbDelete_Click" meta:resourcekey="lbDeleteResource1" />
            </ItemTemplate>
            <ItemStyle HorizontalAlign="Right" />
        </asp:TemplateField>
    </Columns>
    <AlternatingRowStyle BackColor="#EEEEEE" />
</asp:GridView>
<asp:Label ID="lblEmpty" runat="server" Text="<br />U hebt momenteel geen announce pagina's<br />" Visible="False" meta:resourcekey="lblEmptyResource1" />
<br />
<asp:HyperLink ID="hlNew2" runat="server" NavigateUrl="~/backoffice/EventAnounceEdit.aspx?filename=new&eventID=" Text="Nieuw bestand" meta:resourcekey="hlNew2Resource1" />

I'm sorry, bad example, of course it must be like this: meta:resourcekey="hlNewResource1" (like in the example)

This is generated by Tools > Generate local resources

So it is the corresponding file in the App_LocalResources directory with filename ucAnnounce.ascx.resx

I did this a million times, but this is the first time it won't build because of this error.

You are probably calling Localization from somewhere in your code. If you are doing that, it's going to need the file and strings mapped to the ones that are being localized.

Yes, in the main site (1 directory up), there is indeed other localization code.

Damn, didn't see that one.

Can I use a different web.config for the underlying path or isn't there a way around to use that one to?

Tnx to point me out on this, but it would be nice if I knew how to solve this without using the used translationtool.
