Disable Wow64 Redirection
Previous Topic  Next Topic 

On 64 bit Windows Vista (and beyond?) systems, installers and setup programs have certain system directories automatically redirected to a 32 bit directory hierarchy.  This action disables that redirection so that libraries can be properly installed in the 64 bit directories.


Disabling the redirection will continue for the rest of the installation or until a Revert Wow64 Redirection action is executed, but the redirection only applies to the current process, so it will not continue once your installer exits.
