Template talk:Path

About this board

I was thinking something like p|sys32 which becomes "system32" (with a tooltip saying of course that in 64 bit systems that should be a SysWow64)
But then I thought that if there was to be a problem with a 64 bit application... should we write plain system32 in the path?

Also, considering that in every case there would already be a %WINDIR% thing.. perhaps this new argument could already include that (for some reasons)

We were discussing this on the forums just recently. We've decided that for now we do not want to use any environment variables in the template, only things that aren't included among them.
