File is a special case since it's both a compile time and runtime command. That's why it's in the command list.

The compile-time functionality of File should be pretty obvious: You cannot compress into the installer .exe what doesn't exist on the developer's PC. That's why you cannot do File $Variable, because the compiler has no idea what $Variable is supposed to contain.
