I have been facing a problem while trying to change the path of packages folder defined in web.config under tag <add key="packageStoreDirectoryPath" value="C:\BasicWebPlayerPackages"/>
to some relative path in virtual directory like "../BasicWebPlayerPackages" is there any way to give relative path or its must to give path in absolute form!!!
need to deploy it on some server where I got no access except virtual directory

BasicWebPlayer requires the app pool identity to have write access to a folder on the file system. It needs this in order to unzip the packages to a location where they can be read from when a user is executing the content.

I have not tried it, but I assume that if you provide a file system location in the app pool's temp directory, this should work.
