Path to NSIS in config.nmake

A recent question on Ask Wireshark (

Gerald made a change (
to set the NSIS path, but I'm a bit puzzled by it.

On all the 64 bit systems I have, the env var PROGRAMW6432 is set to
"%SystemDrive%\Program Files", so it appears to me that the change, despite
the added comment to config.nmake, doesn't look for makensis.exe in
"%SystemDrive%\Program Files (x86)" at all.

The nsis installer will default to "%SystemDir%\Program Files (x86)", so I
think the second check should use the env var ProgramFiles(x86), which
again on all my 64 bit systems points to the default nsis install location.

Thoughts anyone?
