You should play by SharePoints rules which gives you two options:

  • Store the file somewhere below the SharePointRoot deployed by your WSP, but that means that the users can't change it
  • Store the file in some document library, could be in Central Admin if you want to make sure that only one file is needed, an other common location is at the Content Type Hub
