Hi people,

I hope you can help me with this problem:

I am trying to add BlogEngine to my existing website by adding the BlogEngine project in a subfolder named "blogs". However, I am stucked with the following error (see below).

The "Site.Master" is placed in the correct folder and correct place in the project

I have made sure that the security setup on the folder gives access to the user account in the project. Still I get this error.

Also, I already have a "Site.Master" in my root directory. Can this be the cause ? Isn't it capable of differentiate the two .master-sites ?

Please help. It drives me crazy!

I build the website in "Microsoft visual web developer"

Br,
Jakob
