SYSTEM32 (for 32 and 64 bit installs)

This code shows how to point to files that are in the windows "SYSTEM32" directory on both 32 and 64 bit systems (uses standard "System Folder Properties")

;--- Handle 32/64 bit OS (cmd.exe/hosts file) ---
<$PropertyCa "SYSTEM32DIR" Value="[SystemFolder]"   Seq="InstallValidate-">                               ;;32 Bit computer (will retain this value)
<$PropertyCa "SYSTEM32DIR" Value="[System64Folder]" Seq="InstallValidate-" CONDITION="VersionNT64">       ;;64 Bit computer (will override the line above)
