Please just use the O365 C2R / Standalone Setup set and stop with the open source, security and enterprise nightmare updater. This would put it in C:\Program Files\ where it belongs, not in App Data where everyone should never let executable code run and it also makes it a total nightmare to manage and report on version updates. There is more than one reason for this - we have security policies to follow and validate and verify that software is indeed at the correct version - when its installed per user it could have 30 different versions of the software, and has to install 30 times when each user logs in, and it is not efficient or effective. It also makes troubleshooting and central management nearly impossible.
Yay — we’ve started work on this!

Ideally it installs to C:\Program Files\Microsoft Teams and installs an updater service and keeps its user-specific stuff in %appdata% like the rest of windows.
Windows Defender and Office O365 seem to have no trouble at all updating themselves and interacting with Users or other non-admin accounts.
