Auto updating to Write Restricted Folders

Hi all.

I'm implementing an auto-update feature for the first time and have a newbie
question about it.

If the user installed the original in Program Files or, on Mac in
Applications, then is auto-update doomed to fail when modern OSes enforce
write restrictions to these areas?

I realize I could stick the program in App Data and update that, but what's
the point of Program Files/Applications then?

Any pointers on auto-update for a Livecode desktop program are most welcome!

Thanks,
Tom Bodine
