You probably already read a blogpost about Copy User Data feature here https://forum.rehips.com/index.php?topic=9560.0 Then you know that isolated programs don't have any access to the real user profile directory. It means if you have some program for example on your real user desktop (which is usually C:\Users\YOUR_REAL_USER\Desktop folder) executing this program in isolation will fail unless you enable Copy User Data. This is partially mitigated for your convenience in DeployHelper, it implicitly allows access to the installer file, but if there are multiple installer files, this limitation may also manifest.
So keep in mind this security limitation and don't get too surprised if isolation of a program from some real user profile folder fails.
