Hello All,

I'm am using wspbuilder to create a feature that is supposed to add an option to the "Site Actions" menu. The option(Brand Sites) appears in the "Site Action" but when I click on it, I get
The webpage cannot be found  HTTP 404 error


Below is my feature.xml and elements.xml files.

lso, I have a folder called "brandFile" with the siteBranding.aspx in it.

Any guidance would be appreciated.  Thanks.
FEATURE.XML
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<Feature  Id="d733c5d3-3d61-4e0c-af9e-864600fdb9dd"
          Title="BrandingFeature"

          Version="12.0.0.0"
          Hidden="FALSE"
          Scope="Site"
          DefaultResourceFile="core"
          xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/sharepoint/">
  <ElementManifests>
    <ElementManifest Location="elements.xml"/>
    <ElementFile Location="BrandingFeature.webpart" />
    <ElementFile Location="brandFile/siteBranding.aspx" />
  </ElementManifests>
</Feature>


ELEMENTS.XML
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>
<Elements xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/sharepoint/">

      <Property Name="QuickAddGroups" Value="MyGroup" />
    </File>
    <File Url="brandFile/siteBranding.aspx"
      Type="Ghostable"
      IgnoreIfAlreadyExists="FALSE"/>
  </Module>
  <CustomAction Id="SiteActionsToolbar"
                GroupId="SiteActions"
                Location="Microsoft.SharePoint.StandardMenu"

                Title="Brand Sites">
