This Wiki pages describes the default directory paths that BOINC uses on the various platforms.

Windows 98/SE/ME: C:\Windows\All Users\BOINC or C:\Windows\Profiles\All Users\BOINC\
Windows 2000/XP: C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\BOINC\ (*)
Windows Vista/Windows 7/8/8.1/10: C:\ProgramData\BOINC\ (*)
Macintosh OS X / macOS: /Library/Application Support/BOINC Data/
Linux: Depending on how you installed it, in your Home directory when using the Berkeley Installer; while when using the repository version, see Installing BOINC as a package

(*) This directory is hidden, so put the path to it directly into the path bar in Windows Explorer and press Enter.

With regard to configuration files:

1) Any project specific configuration file app_config.xml placement has to be in the sub structure ..\projects\projectname

2) The general cc_config.xml has to be placed in the main BOINC data directory.
