Setup Prerequisites and x64 - searching for a file

Hi Folks,

Can anyone give me direction on how to create a Setup Prerequisite condition on Windows X64 operating systems in which "a file with a certain version exists" and the path is as follows:

[ProgramFilesFolder]Microsoft SQL Server\100\KeyFile\1033\sqlncli_keyfile.dll

The problem is that [ProgramFilesFolder] evaluates to "C:\Program Files (x86)" on Winodws X64 and I the file I am looking for is in "C:\Program Files"

The supported path variables are [CommonFilesFolder], [ProgramFilesFolder], [SystemFolder], and [WindowsFolder] which doesn't help.

Thanks!

[ProgramFiles64Folder] not supported in setup prereqs

Thanks,

Tried that, doesn't work. [ProgramFiles64Folder] doesn't seem to be supported in the setup prereq instance.

It should be supported as of IS 2010; perhaps see if you can verify what file it's checking with a tool like Process Monitor? Did you rebuild the setup (with the updated prerequisite) before testing this? Just making sure.
