#525 closed Bug (No Bug)

0x8007007E error when compiled 32 bit. OK when compiled 64 bit. Reopened.

The Run function returns error 0x8007007E when I run the attached script after compiling for 32 bit. It works fine when compiled 64 bit or if run as a script (Testit2.AU3). My environment is Vista Ultimate 64 bit version. W32tm.exe which is being run exists in C:\Windows\System32. This bug was originally submitted as #469. I specified the full path as was suggested and the problem still occurs. This really does seem to be a bug.

You have to turn WOW64 redirection off. Windows is going to continue to redirect the system32 directory for a 32-bit process to the SYSWOW64 directory which contains the 32-bit files. That's why you get the "module not found" error - it's not looking where you think it is.

Look at Using AutoIt -> Running under Windows 64-bit Edition in the documentation for more information about directory/registry redirection under 64-bit Windows and what you can do to turn it off.

This is still not a bug in AutoIt.
