Mistake in "Running under Windows 64-bit Edition"

Reported by: MrCreatoR <mscreator@…> Owned by:
Milestone: Component: Documentation
Version: 3.3.8.1 Severity: None
Keywords: Doc 64 Windows Cc:

Description

In the "Running under Windows 64-bit Edition" section in help file there is a table:

Directories  |        32-bit Value       |   64-Bit Value
--------------------------------------------------------------------
@SystemDir   | @WindowsDir & "\SYSWOW64" | @WindowsDir & "\System32"

and here the values are not at their place (SYSWOW64 should be switched with System32).

Unless there is a real mistake in the AutoIt code , Doc is OK as MS choose to keep system32 to store all x64 .dll and when running a 32-Bit application they are referencing the syswow64 dir for the needed .dll
For me there is no bug

Strange, i run under 32-Bit system:

MsgBox(64, 'Title', @SystemDir)

and i got «C:\Windows\system32», so i supose under x64 i will get syswow64, or still system32 because it's 32-application?

  • Resolution set to No Bug
  • Status changed from new to closed

Turn off redirection and you will see the real path. Windows maps the SYSWOW64 directory to system32 for 32-bit processes with redirection enabled. The files really do live in SYSWOW64, though.

No bug here, documentation is correct if a bit misleading.
