Intel XDK Silent Installation for Mass Deployment

I am attempting to mass deploy Intel XDK to a centralized install location in C:\Program Files for use in an educational computer lab where multiple students will be logging into computers and will not have local administrator privileges. Is this supported? I cannot seem to find any documentation of how to accomplish this.

Unfortunately, our install strategy was designed for individual usage, not for mass deployment. It is dictated by the use of the node-webkit project.

The XDK does not work well if you install it into a location that requires admin permissions (such as %ProgramFiles% and %ProgramFiles(x86)%), it is normally installed into %LocalAppData%\Intel\XDK, a folder for which the user has complete ownership. Additionally, the variable bits of the app, that result from user interaction with the tool, end up in the %LocalAppData%\XDK folder.
