An Issue with Area in ASP.NET MVC 3 (VB.NET)

AddThis Social Bookmark Button

          ASP.NET MVC allows you to break/partition your large application into smaller parts. You can use Area in ASP.NET MVC (C# and VB.NET) projects easily. But I have found an issue regarding Area in ASP.NET MVC 3 Tools Update when working with a ASP.NET MVC 3 (VB.NET) project. Note that I am saying ASP.NET MVC 3 Tools Update and ASP.NET MVC 3 (VB.NET), because this issue is specific to both of them. You will not find this issue in ASP.NET MVC 2 (VB.NET), ASP.NET MVC 3 (C#), ASP.NET MVC 3 RTM(not Tools Update) (VB.NET), etc, project. In this article, I will show you the issue
with Area and also show you a quick solution.        Description:             To see this issue in action, create an ASP.NET MVC 3 (VB.NET) project. Then, add an Area in this project. Next, add a controller inside this Area. Now run this application and navigate to this controller action. You will see the following screen,                         Something going wrong in this project. Now follow the same process as above but now with ASP.NET MVC 3 (C#). You will find that everything will work well ASP.NET MVC 3 (C#) project. Now compare your ASP.NET MVC 3 (C#) Area's controller namespace with ASP.NET MVC 3 (VB.NET),
