It seems that you are trying to set the LayoutTemplatePath property for your designer. You should set this value to the LayoutTemplateName. That is if you are working in a code library project which builds into a dll. If you are creating an intra site control you should use application relative path and set the LayoutTemplatePath property.. Also make sure the build action for the .ascx file is embedded resource.
