Within the context of PatchMyPC, how do I configure/modify the NotPad++ deployment so users can self-install plugins without admin rights?
Thank you.

You could run a basic batch or PowerShell script to set the ACL on the plugin folder: https://theitbros.com/using-icacls-to-list-folder-permissions-and-manage-files/

For info on how to add this you'd want to check out the following KB article https://patchmypc.com/advanced-pre-post-scripts Which actually covers a very similar scenario.
