Pressure Loss Report Location

Is there a way to change the default out put location of the "PressureLossReportFormats.xml" that is generated by Revit when creating a Pressure Loss Report?

According to Autodesk WikiHelp, it is .."saved in the same location as the default template." The problem is that our default template location is on the network w/ read-only access, thus creating an error everytime we try to create a report.

We are having this same issue.  Does anyone have a fix for this?

We figured it out. It is controlled thru the INI under:
DefaultTemplate= <Location of template file>

Since the PressureLossReportFormats.xml needs constant read/write access and in order not to have many users save back to it (overwritting the PressureLossReportFormats.xml) by adding their own custom formats, we decided it was best to keep it under each users C: drive rather than on the network. This will keep the .xml file clean.
