Software Distribution issues on console on VDI

We are having some issues on persistent VDI desktops where the console will install fine and appear to work, but the software distribution functions are simply missing from the console. When the same user connects to a console on a non-VDI computer, the software distribution functions all show up in the console. Does anyone have insight as to what permissions the software distribution part of the console is needing? We’re running 10.0.2.

After opening a case, we found that the following paths are required for the Software Distribution portion of the Bigfix console to work. They were not accessible in the VDI setup that the console user was attempting to use.

C:\Users<username>\AppData\Local\Temp<filename is number>\SoftwareDistributionLogs
