  • Wow64 Actions

    The purpose of this plugin is to access folders controlled by the File System Redirector and to read and write registry keys that are subject to Registry Redirection, as found on 64-bit operating systems. The registry functions can also be used on 32-bit operating systems, as a direct replacement for the built-in actions.


    Redirected keys are mapped to physical locations under Wow6432Node. For example, HKLM\Software is redirected to HKLM\Software\Wow6432Node. However, the physical location of redirected keys should be considered reserved by the system. As the technical documentation alerts, applications should never access a key's physical location directly, because this location may change. Instead, you should always use the RegistryView parameter, which allows to set Wow64.KEY64 for operating on the 64-bit registry view, and Wow64.KEY32 for operating on the 32-bit registry view.

    You won't need this if you are building separate installers for 32-bit and 64-bit platforms with Setup Factory 9, otherwise this plugin is still quite useful.
