I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

As a workaround, I suggest yo make a private folder in drive D: When the user of that folder installs new software he can install it to that folder or a subfolder thereof.  For old installations, just uninstall them and reinstall as appropriate.
