EVALUATION

This is happening because we are using installshield to create these registries.  We do this because we had problems calling RegUtils.dll on 64-bit systems.  The fix would be to eventually get RegUtils.dll working for 64-bit systems.

This is a duplicate of the 64-bit installer effort bug.
