Have you checked all XML files for an old definition of the SOFTWARE 

The variable expansion for variable definitions and for commands is the 
same, so I can't think of any good reason for this difference either.

Could you try the following?

<variable name="TEST_VAR" value="%SOFTWARE%"/>

<install cmd="%ComSpec% /C echo %SOFTWARE%"/>
<install cmd="%ComSpec% /C echo %TEST_VAR%"/>
