visual studio 2012 register ascx in web config

I use visual studio 2012 to build web application project (not website) and  register ascx in web config.
e.g.

<add tagPrefix="Controls" tagName="footer" src="~/controls/Footer.ascx"/>
       
However, the webpage aspx does not recognizes the control. No idea why.
It works fine in visual studio 2010.

For VS2012, you need to remove the asp tagprefixes, so the section ends up being

in web.config:

<pages validateRequest="false">
  <controls>
    <add tagPrefix="sc" namespace="Sitecore.Web.UI.WebControls" assembly="Sitecore.Kernel" />
    <add tagPrefix="sc" namespace="Sitecore.Web.UI.WebControls" assembly="Sitecore.Analytics" />
  </controls>
</pages>

Try Like:

<configuration>

  <system.web>

    <pages>
      <controls>
        <add tagPrefix="sc" src="~/locationofcontrol" tagName="sitecore"/>
      </controls>
    </pages>

  </system.web>

</configuration>
