Default Signed Assembly usercontrol in webform

Hi People ,
           I am newbie to embedding a Dotnet Assembly based control in an Aspx page so it behaves like a Com object.I am trying to display a Windows UserControl in a ASP.NET . I have previously managed to do so when my class library(Which contains usercontrols) was unsigned . Inorder to get my code full trust access on my own machine through IIS still , according to some info on web i decided to Strong name the assembly .Now the problem is that the same activex object (User control) work fine in a winform project but if i was to embed it in a ASP>NET page it does n't show up . I have ran Ragasm tool and gacutil.exe to do there jobs . I am sure the assembly is in the cache as well as upon running the command Gacutil /ldl
I get the following output

Microsoft (R) .NET Global Assembly Cache Utility. Version 1.1.4322.573

Number of items = 6

I have set permissions everything permission for MyUserControlCodeGroup to everything
I know it 's security flaw but i just want my control to run for once and then i 'll try to narrow things down.
IIS is configured to provide Anonmous access with windows authentication check box enabled as well .
I looked up the classid for my control from windows registry and i am trying to use that in the webform following is my webform code
