string vs path variable

In the InstallShield IDE, there is a tip for the "Product Name":
"Instead of hard-coding a value, you can use a path variable. At build time, InstallShield replace the path variable with the appropriate value."

My question is: isn't a public string more appropriate than a path variable? after all product name is a string not a path?! right.

I found out that ISCmdBld (command for building from command line) can be given a path variable, in the command line.
so I guess if one sets the product name as a path variable, one can set different values for the product during build....
Is there a more common way to do that?
