I'm installing UDK on a number of teaching lab computers. UDK is not working, probably because the users don't have write permissions on the C:\UDK folder. When they launch the UDK Editor, it silently quits without displaying anything at all.
Because these machines are used by many different students, any sort of tatooing is not allowed - that is, when the user logs out, nothing of theirs can be left behind on the hard disk. Documents, application data, and roaming profiles are stored on the server. Available disk space on the server is too low to give each student their own complete copy of UDK, and I doubt it would run fast enough over the network anyway.
Ideally there would be a single read-only copy of the UDK executables and content on the hard disk, and the students would be able to store all their own content, including levels, configuration settings, and so on, in their Documents folder on the server. Is there any way to do this?
