MsmSystemDirectory

This command is used to create a correctly defined alias for standard "system" type directories such as "ProgramFilesFolder".

Many merge modules don't define these directories correctly, this command ensures you don't make a mistake!

The command takes these parameters:

EXAMPLE

;--- We want to create a directory off "ProgramFilesFolder" -----------------
<$MsmSystemDirectory "ProgramFilesFolder" KEYMAC="PFF">

;--- Create our directory ---------------------------------------------------
define INSTALLDIR  MyDir<$MsmSuffix>        ;;We will refer to it as "<$INSTALLDIR>"
<$Directory Key="<$INSTALLDIR>" Parent="<$PFF>" Dir="MyProgramFilesSubDirectory">
