ADT and location of the Content Browser Library

Have you ever wondered how to change the path to the file ContentBrowserLibrary47.cbl that Autodesk Content Browser fires up? I did and could not find any documentation about it. So I made a bit of investigation and came up with this. So here is the tip. Without changing anything it's default location is in ..\My Documents\Autodesk\My Content Browser LibraryUsing the Deployment Wizard it's possible to change that location. But where is that saved? If you use the Deployment Wizard a file named ContentBrowser.ini is created with a content like this. It's located in the same folder as acad.exe. Typically C:\Program Files\Autodesk Architectural Desktop 2006
[Files]
Library=S:\ADT\ContentBrowserLibrary47.cbl
So if you want to change the path on an existing installation ContentBrowser.ini is where you should go. If it doesn't exist just use Notepad and create it. This is ADT 2006 specific as far as I know.
