Where can I find a listing of paths for the Predefined folders for Windows 10 and 7?

Your question is a bit unprecise. For general purposes Wikipedia might help:

Thanks for the reply. I will try to clarify.
In Setup Architecture > Files, files can be added to system folders. The system folders listed do not all, exactly match those from https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/window ... -variables or even the Wikipedia link.
I also don't see on for Program Files(x86).
Where can a get a complete listing of the predefined folders used in InstallAware and what they map to in Windows 7 and Windows 10?

Right click on the "Target Folders" root node, then from the context menu select "Add System Folder...".
