It's not stored in program files.
Cognos objects such as reports/folders etc. are stored in content database.
You have to setup auditing or directly query content database to find the report/folder path.
For example:
Follow IBM documentation to enable url_xml as a data source.
Then audit sample report 'Report Usage' actually gives report path.
Modify that report to what you want in the report.
For example, I get this from the report:

Rank   ReportPath   Times used   Last used on
-1   /content/package[@name='Audit']/report[@name='Report usage no. of runs with last date used']   5   01/31/2011
-2   /content/package[@name='ProjectTracker']/report[@name='Current Project Assignments by WORKGROUP']   4   01/31/2011

Reports in user's my folders will have CAMID instead of user's name:
   CAMID("DevAD:u:658f881c00f0304d8cd679087059f8f4")/folder[@name='My Folders']/report[@name='Test for package move to folder']   1   01/31/2011
