Obtain Current Users %APPDATA% Path and not Admins


I am looking to get the path to the current users %APPDATA% folder.

Note: I am aware of the variable $APPDATA BUT if you run your installer with RequestExecutionLevel admin then $APPDATA will point to the admins roaming folder and NOT the current user's app data folder.

I need to find out the current users %APPDATA% path so I can write files to their roaming directory. Does anyone know how I can find this out?

RequestExecutionLevel admin

Section "Main"
MessageBox MB_OK "AppData is: $APPDATA" # knowtice that its the path to the admins folder not the current user's
