Using ProgramFilesDir^ for 32bit machines

Currently using a 64bit machine to create the ISMs that are being installed on a 64bit desktop. I need the install files to go to the 32bit program files location instead of the 64bit location.

Only some of the files are correctly going to the righ location while one file is going to th3 64bit location. Before we were using a 32bit machine to create the ISM and it would correctly install on 64bit desktops.

What parameters should I use for it to correctly install?

Also, what parameters would I need to have this install on any desktop i.e. foreign desktops, given the fact that not all program files folders are spelled the same.

Re: Using ProgramFilesDir^ for 32bit machines

If you want files to go to the 32-bit area, then use the variable
PROGRAMFILES. PROGRAMFILES64 points at the 64-bit area.

See here:

Good luck,

Thanks, still unclear on how to have it autodetect for other languages.
