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. ###@###.### 2003-09-02q This is a duplicate of the 64-bit installer effort bug. ###@###.### 2004-12-02 19:59:47 GMT
