The installer sets this variable to the full path of the System folder for the native executables of the target system: the 32-bit System folder on 32-bit systems or the 64-bit System folder on 64-bit systems.
The following table shows the typical folder paths for the various System folder variables on different Windows versions.
|Folder name||Variable||Windows 95/98/Me||Windows NT4||32-bit Windows 2000 and later||64-bit Windows|
*There is no 64-bit System folder on 32-bit systems. However, if you do install files in the System (64-bit) folder on a 32-bit target system, then the installer will create a System64 folder on the target system to install the files into.
You can refer to this variable as <SystemXFolder>. Do not change its value; it has been carefully configured for cross-platform compatibility.
You should use <SystemXFolder> as part of file or folder paths if you want to use the native version of the executable. For example, <SystemXFolder>\notepad.exe will always refer to the native version of Notepad; likewise, <SystemXFolder>\cmd.exe is the native version of the Windows command interpreter.
