Hello anshul,
are you using Apache for Windows or IIS?
What version of SEOTOASTER did you install?

Yes, I see you are using IIS.
So you should setup rewrite rules for it to route all request to index.php (except those resources that exists).
Consider reading this article:

If you will find working configuration feel free to share with SEOTOASTER users community.

Sorry anshul, but we have a lot of ongoing work to be done.

However, go through this article

just installed Seotoaster on a Windows Server 2008 with IIS 7,5.

Here the translation of .htaccess to web.config:

  <!--Diese Regel wurde nicht konvertiert, da sie von IIS nicht unterst├╝tzt wird: RewriteBase /.-->
    <rule name="Importierte Regel 1">
      <match url="^\.htaccess$" ignoreCase="false" />
      <action type="CustomResponse" statusCode="403" statusReason="Forbidden" statusDescription="Forbidden" />
    <rule name="Importierte Regel 2" stopProcessing="true">
      <match url="^(.*)$" ignoreCase="false" />
        <!--#canonicalization do not remove!-->
        <add input="{HTTP_HOST}" pattern="^www\.DOMAIN\.TLD$" ignoreCase="false" negate="true" />
      <action type="Redirect" redirectType="Permanent" url="http://www.DOMAIN.TLD/" />
    <!--#end canonicalization-->
    <rule name="Importierte Regel 3" stopProcessing="true">
      <match url="^index\.html$" ignoreCase="false" />
      <action type="Redirect" redirectType="Permanent" url="http://www.DOMAIN.TLD/" />
    <!--#301 redirect-->
    <rule name="Importierte Regel 4" stopProcessing="true">
      <match url="^automated-301-redirects-seo\.html$" ignoreCase="false" />
      <action type="Redirect" redirectType="Permanent" url="http://www.DOMAIN.TLD/More-information.html" />
    <rule name="Importierte Regel 5" stopProcessing="true">
      <match url="^(.*)$" ignoreCase="false" />
        <!--#end 301-->
        <add input="{SCRIPT_FILENAME}" matchType="IsFile" ignoreCase="false" negate="true" />
        <add input="{SCRIPT_FILENAME}" matchType="IsDirectory" ignoreCase="false" negate="true" />
      <action type="Rewrite" url="index.php" />

(Change DOMAIN.TLD to your domain)
