    I have a Sitefinity Website project,with additional supporting projects ,MultipleImageSelectorField and ThumbnailSelectorField.These two project's Dlls are added to the reference for my sitefinity project.After  Precompile the Sitefinity Project, and publish it to the IIS Server.
    When using the Multiple and thumbnail Image selector field controls,throws an "
    HTTP Error 404 - File or directory not found." error.  I found that ,the cause of error was ,the Image selector's ascx files are not present in the precompiled files in IIS Server.The two image selectors are in the DLL format in IIS server.So the files are  not found error occurs.
    Is there any way to add the (Image selector's) ascx or aspx files with the Precompiled folder,When publish or build the Sitefinity Website project?

    Hi guys,

    I can conclude you are using the Thumbnail Selector from this Blog Post. The most probable reason for the behavior you are experiencing is the fact that you have not marked your .js, .ascx files as an Embedded resource as specifically stated in the post. Here is some further information on the sample that elaborates on the embedded resources specifically.
