I have an MVC3 web application and a second Dynamic Data website used for data administration. I want a link from the MVC3 to the Dynamic Data site, and have created the code which will redirect it. At the moment it looks like this,

string url = http://localhost:4189/WebAdmin/%3Fun3Dmyusername%3D353494271.949838

since in development I have hard coded the path "http://localhost:4189/WebAdmin/%" into my web config. The problem is that when I call Response.Redirect(url) I get the YellowScreenOfDeath with the above error (in subject).

Should I use somethign besides Response.Redirect()?

Thanks,

OR add it in web.config

<system.web>
        <httpRuntime requestValidationMode="2.0" requestPathInvalidCharacters="" />
        <pages validateRequest="false" />

I think I mis-understood. I need to update the target web.config. I am testing that now...
