How can I use "%systemroot%" in my SilkTest scripts to identify where my operating system files are stored?

How can I use "%systemroot%" in my SilkTest scripts to identify where my operating system files are stored?

Usually "%system%" (without the inverted commas) identifies the C:\Windows or C:\WINNT directory, i.e. the place where the operating system files are to be found. The "%" signs around it identify it as a variable name.

If we would like to use this variable in our SilkTest scripts, we need to have the operating system translate the environment variable by using the "SYS_GetEnv()" method, as in the following example, which prints the contents of the system root directory to the Results file:


[-] testcase UseSystemRoot() appstate none
[ ] LIST OF FILEINFO SystemRootContents
[ ] INTEGER Count
[ ]
[ ] SystemRootContents = SYS_GetDirContents("{SYS_GetEnv("SYSTEMROOT")}")
[ ]
[-] for Count = 1 to ListCount(SystemRootContents)
[ ] Print(SystemRootContents[Count].sName)
