    Code FileExplorer.InitialPath = "~/Documents";  or on any folder throws message box "Invalid characters in folder name."
    This bug was introduced in Telerik.Web.UI_2010_2_826 and later. All previous releases until was all right in such a functionality.
    Check it, please.

    Resolution has been found. Thanks.

    Actually this is not a bug but a designed behavior. InitialPath property expects physical path as value, and the "~/FolderName" is a virtual path - the ~ (tilde) is invalid character for folder / file names.

    Setting virtual path to the InitialPath property was possible in the previous versions due to a bug in RadFileExplorer.

     My ImageManager path is given below:

    string[] viewPath = new string[] { @"~/SchemeImage/" + (!string.IsNullOrEmpty(Request.QueryString["CorporateSchemeID"]) ? Convert.ToString(Request.QueryString["CorporateSchemeID"]) : "") };

    It generates the path : ~/SchemeImage/478

    When I select Image in RADEditor and click on ImageManager Icon it gives me error "Invalid Characters in folder name". I am guessing due to tilde (~) sysmbol it is throwing this error. Please help to resolve this issue.

    Note: SchemeImage is virtual directory in IIS which is pointing to different server.
