Set CfgLocation back to default

How do I get TestStand back to its default directory.  Apparently this setting is in the registry but I could not find it.  TestStand 2019 cannot open since I inadvertently pasted a User Manager File path into the TestStand Configuration Directory in the Preferences.  No write access to the directory.

 

Not found here -  

Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\National Instruments\TestStand\19.0\

or here - 

Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\National Instruments\TestStand\19.0

 

It should not be this easy to break TestStand, it cannot start. Throws an error to make a registry change to the CfgLocation.

The directory settings cannot be changed, it is maintained by IT.  Only option is to fix TestStand 2019

Look like I overlooked the registry key. The value are located here for the record - 

 

Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\National Instruments\TestStand\19.0     (64bit TestStand)
 
Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\National Instruments\TestStand\19.0  (32bit TestStand)
