When you use the advanced settings in Sitefinity CMS backend, the settings are persisted in the configuration. By default, these are stored as physical files in folder ~/App_Data/Sitefinity/Configuration of your web project.
Instead of using the UI to register a widget, you can edit the configuration files. The toolbox configurations have their own separate file, named ToolboxesConfig.config.
Perform the following:
"My User Control"
"My custom widget"
"A sample custom control"
