32bit/64bit question

3 posts in this topic

This is not an issue, just a small question of interrest..

I have compiled a 32bit utility that started 100% in Win7 64bit, but did not want to impliment the instruction ( to change a certain registry-entry).

I then took the .au3 and converted it to 64bit, and the instruction(s) ( to change certain settings in the registry ) worked 100%

Any ideas why Win7 64bit would refuse a 32bit utility "instruction" regarding registry-change, even though the 32bit program DID open?

Maybe because there is a different registry path.

When running on 64-bit Windows if you want to write a key or value specific to the 64-bit environment you have to suffix the HK... with 64 i.e. HKLM64.

...weird....i didnt change ONE bit of code and it worked on 64-bit registry...lol

PS: and i also didnt specify "64"...but it could be because i didnt shorten my hive..i wrote HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE, instead of HKLM...
