When ASP.NET MVC 2 couldn't find a particular view page, it will throw an exception something as below which shows that the view engine looks up the view page twice under ~/Areas/Notices/Views/ folder. But why? Is this a bug in the view engine, thanks.

The partial view 'NoticeView' was not found. The following locations were searched:

Hi there,
This error occur usually when you don't set the start action.. To set the start action follow this:
In every application there is a Global.asax. Open that file and set the startup controller and action name.

public static void RegisterRoutes(RouteCollection routes)

                "Default", // Route name
                "{controller}/{action}/{id}", // URL with parameters
                new { controller = "Home", action = "Index", id = UrlParameter.Optional } // Parameter defaults


In this scenario I want to execute "Index" action of "Home" controller..

All the best

Thanks very much. But our project has the same statements in RegisterRoutes() for the Default route, so doesn't seems because of this.
