"The file" ... "is in the special directory" ... "which is not allowed." error RRS feed

    When we run the SEO toolkit, it causes hundreds of HTTP Exception errors to be thrown as a result of the problem below:

    Exception information:
    Exception type: System.Web.HttpException
    Exception message: The file
    '/App_Themes/DefaultStyles/img/App_Master/App_Themes/DefaultStyles/Images/App_Themes/DefaultStyles/App_Master/Default.aspx' is in the special directory 'App_Themes', which is not allowed.

    This is just one example error out of many other similar ones. The only part of the noted directory structure that physically exists is "/App_Themes/DefaultStyles/img/". Can someone please tell me why this is happening and how to resolve the error?

    That sounds like some relative paths are not working the way they should.

    If your site is over the internet if you could send me the URL to my same user @ microsoft . com, I can take a look at what is wrong.
