sharing web user control between projects

I have 2 different projects, one that has **just** a web user control ("UC"), and another one that wants to reference and use that project ("PARENT").

I've referenced the "UC" project in the "PARENT" but when I try to add a reference to the .ascx that resides inside of "UC", I get an error at runtime:

http:/localhost/DealerSocket.Web.Common.UserControls/uc_DatePicker.ascx' is not a valid virtual path.

I've added the "UC" project as a virtual path, so I am not sure what more I can do.

web page (.aspx) markup:

<%@ Register src="http://localhost/DealerSocket.Web.Common.UserControls/uc_DatePicker.ascx" tagname="uc_DatePicker" tagprefix="uc2" %>

Open in new window


then futher down:
<uc2:uc_DatePicker ID="uc_DatePicker1" runat="server" />

Open in new window



How do I correct this problem?

Also I've removed the block for .ascx file types in IIS so it's not that.

It's looking for a relative path.  

So if localhost is the default starting path of your website:
src="/DealerSocket.Web.Common.UserControls/uc_DatePicker.ascx"

If you don't have a relative path copy it into a sub folder and put the control in there.
