comment %ProgramFiles% differences on 64bit Windows
Actually, instead of avoiding the redirection, I'm trying to enact it from a Windows prompt; for instance, I'd like to be able to script %ProgramFiles% and have it use C:\Program Files on 32bit and yet use C:\Program Files (x86) on 64bit. This is the way in which both Apache and PHP work, and while I can't comment on whether this is "correct", it is a nifty behavior. For example, I can set ServerRoot "${ProgramFiles}\Zend\Apache2" in httpd.conf, and it will correctly find the Zend/Apache install (which is in the x86 folder on 64bit) regardless of the Windows version.
