    Completely agree. Installing to appdata is going to kill our RDS rollout userdisks. Every user who logs in is going to have another copy of the program stored in the profile for no reason.

    @Andreas - You are completely right and as an IT admin, I know that access rights are created for a reason and thus should not be undermined by a software dev who created the ability to place said access rights.

    I am finding that when an error comes up, like "Yikes, someone pulled the plug", and the user is remote, it's difficult to troubleshoot. If I need to uninstall, I can't because it's in their profile.

    I've also noticed that the program is installed in multiple locations under each user profile. Under AppData\Local and AppData\Roaming. C'mon, please.

    Should? There are likely arguments for both, probably installed at that location because of different access rights. So if something should be changed an option to change the location might be better.
