this looks like an issue with your web.config in the laywer subfolder. Could you perhaps attach this web.config file?
Are you using the URL rewrite configuration inside the web.config? If yes, have you installed the URL rewrite module?

HResult code                  

Error message
Server Error in Application "application name"
HTTP Error 500.19 – Internal Server Error
HRESULT: 0x8007000d
Description of HRESULT
The requested page cannot be accessed because the related configuration data for the page is invalid.

This problem occurs because the ApplicationHost.config file or the Web.config file contains a malformed XML element.      

Delete the malformed XML element from the ApplicationHost.config file or from the Web.config file.

I agree with Rainer, I would first remove the URL Rewrite rules and see if the issue persists.

If the issue doesn't appear after removing the section, you know where the issue is.  As stated above, verify that you have the URL Rewrite feature installed.
