Yes, I still write batch files.  Sue me.*

Here’s one version of my IF statement:

   1: SET ProgRoot=%ProgramFiles%
   2:  
   3: IF NOT "%ProgramFiles(x86)%" == "" (
   4:     SET ProgRoot=%ProgramFiles(x86)%
   5: )
   6:  
   7: ECHO %ProgRoot%

This will output:
C:\Program Files (x86

Yes, it’s missing the closing parenthesis.

Here’s another version:

   1: SET ProgRoot=%ProgramFiles%
   2:  
   3: IF NOT "%ProgramFiles(x86)%" == "" SET ProgRoot=%ProgramFiles(x86)%
   4:  
   5: ECHO %ProgRoot%

And it will output:
C:\Program Files (x86)

That version is correct.
