Question About ESO Install locations (are they always Live/LiveEU?)

So does the Elder Scrolls Online directory ever have anything besides Elder Scrolls Online\live or liveeu? I'm making a C Searcher for the Game's Addons location and UserSettings. I need additional checks to make sure it's absolutely the correct directory. Any ideas on doing that besides checking for "Elder Scrolls Online" and "live" and "UserSettings.txt" ?

Where is "live", "liveeu" and "pts".
And I would start with asking the OS for the user "My Documents" path:
powershell:
Code:
[System.Environment]::GetFolderPath("MyDocuments")
C#:
Code:
System.Environment.GetFolderPath(System.Environment.SpecialFolder.MyDocuments);
Which is not always located at "C:".
And you don't want to probe all drives.

I already use my documents folder location by default. I'm working on searching the entire C Drive for ESO's location incase it's installed somewhere else.

What is PTS? Can you confirm whether or not all ESO install locations include "Live" or "Liveeu" in their folder locations?

PTS is Public Test Server. It has a UserSettings.txt aswell.

And yes. A typical player has "live" or "liveeu".
But, in theory, a user can play on all three mega-servers.
