can "basic web player" be installed in windows xp sp2 or it requires windows server only?

however i am getting an error while uploading SCORM packages to it as follows:

An exception occurred while uploading a package:
System.IO.IOException: The directory name is invalid.
   at System.IO.__Error.WinIOError(Int32 errorCode, String maybeFullPath)   at System.IO.__Error.WinIOError()   at System.IO.Path.GetTempFileName()   at Microsoft.LearningComponents.PackageReader.Create(Stream package)

Make sure the folder that holds your zips has the proper permissions for the application to copy from.  This is the one item I always forget when starting up a new server.

I had this same issue. Bfelda is correct, check your user permissions. I had to use impersonation.


In the web.config under <system.web> add:

<identity impersonate="true" userName="USER" password="PASS" />
