comment Recommended Install location for service on Windows
Due to the "File and Registry Virtualization" feature in Windows 7 and Vista writes are redirected(and subsequent reads) to a per-user location within the user’s profile. So if I install the app into programfiles but it will actually be run as a specific user data will end up in that users VirtualStore. This will confuse the server app, since it will not be able to determine its root directory properly. So would it be best to run it as a specific user and install it into that users folder like you mentioned then?

Question though. How can I prevent Windows from doing the shadowing of registry in the specific users registry and shadow folder. This seems to confuse my apps discovery of where it is running from? Or should I install it into the users home folder since it is supposed to run as a specific user.

This is for a manual install of a bundle that has no installer... just a Java server with bundled app and JSW as part of it. Just wondering where to put it best.

This is wrong. sudo runs with root privileges but not as root.
