Update behavior


I'd like to deploy blizz to a number of hosts. I already found this post

But now I wonder what happens if one user triggers an update. Will the update be installed to the installation directory of my choosing or will it install blizz unter %userprofile%\Appdata\Roaming\Blizz ?

    So we simply installed Blizz into program files with the parameter Install DIr. Then we wrote a script that adjusts the permissions for the users on C:\Program Files (x86)\Blizz. And finally, a shortcut is created which also puts this on the desktop via script C:\Users\Public\Desktop.
    Now all users can use Blizz and also update without installing the update in Appdata.

    For the acess rights we have used cacls.exe.
    cacls.exe "%programfiles(x86)%\Blizz" /G YourLocalGroup:C /E /T
    the shortcut was previously created manually and placed in a shared Folder on a server and copied from there to the public desktop with cp.
    The scripts for the installation can then be easily installed via a software distribution, GPO or login script.
