    404 page error failing on top level nodes only

    If anyone can help me with this I would really apprecaite it.

    When I try to go to a page that doesn't exist on my site, if it's a top level node eg. I get an asp error:

    StartIndex cannot be less than zero.
    Parameter name: startIndex

    If I go to a subnode, e.g. I get my correct 404 error page as defined in my web.config.

    I have not seen this issue with older versions of Umbraco (I'm using 4.11.10) and I have spent hours trying every solution I found online. My web host tells me it's something to do with the way umbraco handles virtual directories.

    I am totally stuck on this one now and would really like a better 404 page (even if I can't get a custom one - just making this asp error go away would be fine).

    Thank you for any help.

    Did you ever fix this issue ? I'm seeing the same problem on the homepage.
