Try

Run(@ComSpec & " /c " & '%windir%\system32\sysocmgr.exe /i:%windir%\inf\sysoc.inf', "", @SW_HIDE)
according to the help file.

Or just...

Run(@SystemDir & '\sysocmgr.exe /i:' & @WindowsDir & '\inf\sysoc.inf')

You could have made the original work by setting:

Opt("ExpandEnvStrings", 1)
That would allow the environment variable %windir% to expand correctly for you.
