It gives me this error:

If this attribute value is enclosed in quotation marks, the quotation marks must match.

missing a starting quote for the ImageURL attribute:

<asp:HyperLink ID="hlMainImageView2"
                                             runat="server" ImageUrl="<%Session.BaseUrl%>UploadedImages/">View</asp:HyperLink>

I did this

<br />
<asp:HyperLink ID="HyperLink4"
                                             runat="server" navigateurl="<%Session.BaseUrl%>UploadedImages/100-Main.jpg">View</asp:HyperLink>

AND IT navigated to

http://localhost:52803/MyAPP/products/%3C%Session.BaseUrl%%3EUploadedImages/100-Main.jpg

It did not give me the value for BaseUrL

also /products should not be int the path

IT does not render. IT tells me that the server tag is not well formed

Actually how about you do this instead :

<asp:HyperLink ID="HyperLink4"
                                             runat="server" navigateurl="~/UploadedImages/100-Main.jpg">View</asp:HyperLink>
