Running composer (and other tools) on restricted systems

Suppose your Windows System restricts Access rights in the program folder:

- No user app can write in the program folder.

- Applications can only be started from within the program folder.

 

These settings given, you need to reconfigure XAMP like so:

- Applications and other binaries Need to be placed in the programs folder.

- Apache's htdocs folder, MySQL's data folder and various log folder Need to be placed in a writeable folder [e.g. ProgramData].

 

Unfortunately, I didn't find a well working setup for composer and other tools to be started using the PHPStorm UI.

Do we have instructions how to configure PHPStorm in this situation?

Are you able to set this up for using Composer only without PhpStorm? If you are, there shouldn't be any difficulties to make PhpStorm use it.
