In the VisualWebPart template of VS2010 it's possible to load an adittional user control.
In VS2012 it isn't. After adden a User Control you get compiler errors.

Hi Lenard,

This issue is caused because the Visual Web Part template in VS2012 is altered to better work with sandboxed solutions. The sandboxed solutions don't support user controls.

A temporary fix is replace the Visual web part template with the one from VS2010.
