Which InstallAnywhere Variable holds the machine total and free memory?

Since the Free and Total memory are displayed in the installation log, I wondered if these values also stored in InstallAnywhere Variable so it can be used?

First of all, do not rely too much on that values. I've just done a quick installation of one of our products on my machines and this is what the installer reported in the log file:
"Free Memory: 11093 kB
Total Memory: 19972 kB"
while I have 3 GB of memory... so I'm really not sure what these values were supposed to mean.
On the other hand, AFAIK, these values are not stored in any IA variable, but you may want to try a Debug Output action and list the variables, in order to see maybe you can spot them?
