SystemFolder property

The installer sets the SystemFolder property to the full path of the System folder.


The installer sets this property. For example, on 32-bit Windows the value may be C:\Windows\System32. On 64-bit Windows, the value may be C:\Windows\SysWow64.

This folder is normally a subdirectory of the Windows folder. However, it resides on a server when configured for Shared Windows.

This folder is local, even when configured for shared Windows.
