We want to move to a model on all platforms where user data is not stored in the application area. This is the Windows-specific ticket. See #13252 for the original, Mac-specific ticket.

#22036 seems to be a duplicate of this: bridges added in, say, the stable bundle should not get overwritten if, say, the alpha series gets installed. At least that's a thing we could think about while fixing this bug.

I marked #32248 as a duplicate even though it suggested to move the bundle to C:\Program Files instead to the Desktop.

This might seems orthogonal to this ticket but when decoupling the user data from the application one we will need to discuss where to put those directories anyway (or to put it differently: it very likely won't work out to move the whole bundle to places like C:\Program Files without doing the work in this ticket).

We can create child tickets for particular tasks once the work here starts and we feel like that's the right thing to do.
