CON-1456 - Infinite restart loop when using virtual App_Data

If you have a virtual App_Data folder and umbraco forms > 6.01 then forms continually tries to install itself (I think) The issue is reported in more depth on stack overflow here: My additional notes are that the Dashbaord.config and the en.xml file are constantly updated.

I think this is a related issue: CON-1310 but I think the code does not do a server.MapPath at some critical point

I believe the issue is that this file is being read from the physical path instead of the virtual path. \App_Data\TEMP\formsupdate If you include this file in both physical and virtual locations this should work-around the issue.

@Shandem Any chance of a fix for this? :) It's been driving me mad for the last few days.
