When running from a virtual directory, we need to prefix our paths with ~/. However, the assetsService does not seem to expand these to the full path.

Ex: assetsService.loadCss("~/App_Plugins/Archetype/css/archetype.css");

Tries to load:

You'll find that there's quite a few more issues with running in a vdir. If at all possible, it should be avoided.

Thanks, good to know! Do you know the specifics of any of the issues? Wondering if there's anything major or is it all minor stuff like this?

Happy to help fix things like this (just sent a [PR|https://github.com/umbraco/Umbraco-CMS/pull/419] for the other one), but yeah, if there's something major perhaps we should reconsider...

Plenty of issues in the tracker. Your PR may fix some but it's mostly packages that will be problematic.
