No, I don't think so, not using the xml-stylesheet PI.

That would be wrong, even if it worked.
the href is a uri and the bit before a ":" in a uri is the uor protocol
like http:// or mailto: you should get an "unknown protocl C" error for
the URI should be file:///C:/MyReports/report.xsl"
Although I see from the error message you report:

> "The system cannot locate the resource specified. Error processing resource 
> 'file:///C:/MyReports/report.xsl'. "

your system automatically translated to teh file:/// protocol you should
not rely on that.

If you are loading the xml file directly from the file system (eg by
double clicking on it) I would have expected that the link worked,
although if they are in the same directory, why not just use
<?xml-stylesheet  type="text/xsl" href="report.xsl"?>
