Problem of ActiveX(x86) in Vista 64-bit RRS feed

  • Question

  • I made an ActiveX that is 32-bit.

    In rgs file, I writed sentence, val LocalizedString = s '@%MODULE%,-101'.

    I expected that it will write 'C:\Windows\sysWow64\MyActivex.dll as value of LocalizedString in registery.

    but it writed C:\Windows\system32\MyActivex.dll in registery.

    In actuality, MyActivex.dll is downloaded at sysWow64 folder.

    How do I? Why automatically Register Redirecter is effect?

    Does your application run on Server 2003 64 bit?

  • I don't know because I didn't test on Server 2003 64 bit.

    I tested XP(32-bit - Korean), Windows 2000(Korean), Vista 32-bit(Korean) and It's worked.

    But It's not problem of only me. I see this issue at some blog in korea.
    Doesn't Vista 64bit English have this problem?

  • There's a lot of details about the architecture of running 32 bit on 64 bit OS so I'll defer my version of them.


    here's a few links:

    Does your program function properly. Wht are you using to install your program? It's best on Vista to design an installer for your application and properly manifest it. If you took that to the next best place you would create a 64 bit version of your application.
