Introduction:

Is there a way to change the default directory path for reports from Migrations, Adoptions, etc. from Gen CSE Clients?  The default is c:\program files (x86)\CA\Gen85\Client and some developers do not have write access to this location.  

 

Instructions:

By default it sets this directory to the location of the CSE Clients (Version  Control Client in this case) to 'C:\program files (x86)\CA\Gen85\Client'   which is the location of the clients.   This location can be changed on-the-fly when writing the report.   Their is a way to change the default location for each users workstation that contains the CSE Clients.   To do this, modified the CSE Client Icon properties for "Start in" to %userprofile%  or a specific location where the user has write access...and when the user attempts to write a migrate/adopt report, it will show the directory specified within the icon 'Start In' location. 

This can be done for any of the CSE Clients.
