I have a custom 404 error page that has an image and an embeded video. The video plays, but no matter what I do, I can't get the image to display. I've tried making the page an ASP (classic) page, putting it and the image in the IISerrors/common folder, the root of the website and a separate directory (c:\iiserrors), all to no avail.

Any ideas?

Thanks,

if you right mouse click where the image should appear and go to Properties, is it a valid URL? Also, make sure the IUSR account has access to where the image resides

Hello,

    * open "properties" for your website
    * go to "home directory" tab
    * click on "configuration"
    * look for the extension ".aspx"
    * click on "edit"
    * check the check box which says "verify that file exists"

       Also Check your web.config

Regards,

I looked at the path and found where it expected the image to be and moved it there.
