How to add registry 32bit on system 64bit?

Tue Oct 19, 2021 4:08 pm

Hi admin,
My computer's using win64bit, autodesk app 64bit .
I'm creating a plugin that automatically loads the plugin when the app starts.
To do this I need to add the registry to this path (from the developer's guide):
Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Company\...\...\...\Applications

If I set it up using the regular registry in the advanced installer it will add
Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\Company\...\...\...\Applications
How do I change this?

I hope to hear from you soon.
If this is not customizable I would like to be able to add both paths at the same.

Thank you!

Hello,

In order to achieve this, please have a look on the following reply from another thread which debates a similar issue:
Install registry entries (both 32 & 64 bit)

Also, you can check our How to install different registry entries based on the Operating System (32/64-bit) article.

Hope this helps! If you have any other questions, please don't hesitate to contact us.

Best regards,
Liviu

Hi Liviu,
This seems to be exactly what I needed.
I've seen it but I haven't tried because the 64-bit component's name is confusing.
I'll try it and get back to you later.
