Here is a thread on the same issue, but so old that the advice it gives is no longer accurate:
Re: Error creating user home in directory D:\Program Files\raptor\jdev.
So let's assume you no longer have write access to your own Windows user directory. To workaround that just add the following to one of the conf files in the SQL Developer installation folder. For example, to run SQL Developer from a flash drive, I modified my E:\sqldeveloper\ide\jdk.conf to include
AddVMOption -Dide.user.dir=../../.sqldeveloperSo that the user home is E:\.sqldeveloper
