I was surprised to find that Webroot does not support the use of user environment variables under Overrides.  We would like to exclude certain directories under the users profile, but can't do so without creating an explicit override for each user since %userprofile%, for example isn't supported.  Obviously creating a separate override for each user in the company is just not practical.
Example: for my development team, I would like to exclude all directories related to Visual Studio.  The path I would need to exclude is c:users<username>DocumentsVisual Studio 2015
c:users<username>DocumentsVisual Studio 2017
Allowing me to use %userprofile% and a wildcard character would allow me to cover all users and all current and future versions of Visual Studio with the following:
%userprofile%documentsVisual Studio*

Please tell me this isn’t still the case?
