    Software Restiction Policy on 64 bit advice please...

    I have a software restriction policy on our current windows 7 32 bit estate one of the unrestricted areas is:

    %HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\Cur rentVersion\ProgramFilesDir%

    However it seems during testing that this does not allow for the "Program Files (x86)" directory.

    Is there a similar %String% for this folder?

    Cheers

    Can you not just add the hard path? I know it is nice to use variables but it's really not likely to be anything other than Program files(x86)

    %HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\Cur rentVersion\ProgramFilesDir (x86)%
