Move Appdata for educational lab setup with roaming users

Hello. I have been given the task of getting Arduino data out of student appdata directories and possibly moving it to C:\Program Files or some other static location. Is this possible? Can I tell Arduino to look elsewhere for its files? Do I need a temp space on the drives the students would have rights to? Would I be able to give the program write permission instead? We have a problem with the student's roaming profiles and lack of consistent set ups. As you can imagine, the students also should not be able to write to the hard drive or they will be passing exam information.

Thank you for your help with this.

Hello Tseman, since students can't have administrator privileges, maybe you can use a portable version of the IDE:
