Systemvariable as Destination?

I'm having a simple problem and just can't find the simple solution.

On the PCs in our Company we have a systemvariable %SYSAPPS%. I have to install some files in subdirectories of the variable.
My problem is, that i can't select SYSAPPS from the predefined folders.

What do i have to do that i can select this variable as destination for my new component?

I'm ussing Installshield 2008 with Basic MSI and i'm not allowed to use Custom Actions.

Create a PUBLIC property Use VBS to to read the value of %SYSAPPS% from destination system into a public variable (Or you could use public property) then assign that value to INSTALLDIR when OnBegin() executes.
