The question isn't whether REG.EXE will do variable substition - it is
whether the command shell will do variable substition when it passes
parameters (namely environmental variables such as this) to REG.EXE, at run
time, in the context of an interpreted script, or command line.

The command shell *will* do such variable substitution, so REG.EXE will
simply have the right things passed to it.

But if this isn't something you would either deduce, or believe from me, you
could always try it and see! ;-)
