Zoom Client for Meetings not updating when installed in user's AppData folder

Tenable is reporting high vulnerability for Zoom Client for Meetings from about 100 devices that all show the client installed at c:\users\username\appdata\roaming\zoom\bin\zoom.exe.  They are reporting versions from 4.6 up to 5.15.

We are currently publishing updates for Zoom Meetings (x64), Zoom Meetings (x86), and Zoom Outlook Plugin.

Is there anyway to attack this?

Because those are user-based installs, typical updates as SYSTEM will not detect and update them. The easiest way to update those installs is to actually push the machine-wide Application install to those devices, the Zoom installer is pretty good at updating existing user-based installs with a machine-wide install. Once the machine-wide install is in-place, Patch My PC updates can then continue to update the product.
