Registry changes not made on Windows 7, 64 bit

We have an MSI file that we run for a client side
application that makes registry changes needed for odbc
connections to a SQL Anywhere database. We tested the
install on a pc with a Windows 7, 32 bit configuration with
no problems. We tried to test the install on a pc with
Windows 7, 64 bit configuration and the registry changes
were not made. Does anyone have any suggestions?

> Found the problem. Windows 7, 64 bit makes the registry
changes, just not where you would expect them to be. As a
result of this, the application cannot establish the
connection to the database. It appears that 2 different MSI
files will be necessary. One for Windows 7, 32 bit and one
for Windows 7, 64 bit.

Hi Larry;

   Correct ... W7 64 bit has a different registry design that is split 
between the 64 bit world and the 32 bit world.

How are you checking to see if the changes are not made? Both the 64 bit 
and 32 bit versions of the regitry editor and the ODBC administrator are 
named the same so you have to ensure that you are running the 32 bit 
version (from the C:\Windows\SysWOW64 directory) to see 32 bit specific 
entries. To verify, run the task manager which marks 32 bit executables 
with an "*".

What is the source of the MSI? Is it bit aware meaning that it knows 
that it is installing to 32 bit vs. 64 bit? What happens if you run it 
from a 32 bit command prompt  i.e., does the installer do the right thing?

..NET based applications are bit agnostic by default. If you installer is 
based on .NET, it will run with the same bitness of the platform - 64 
bit on Windows 64.

Occasional errors with 32-bit Delphi 7 application on Windows 7 64-bit
Hi, I have a 32-bit Delphi 7 application which was deployed on some machines with Windows 7 64-bit.

Problems when installing PowerBuilder 12.0 on Windows 7 64 bit
When I try to install PowerBuilder 12.0 I get the following message... Your machine does not have Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 SP1 installed.

Groupwise 7 on Windows 7 64 bit

Can't get Grub working openSUSE 11.3 64-bit with Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit
First and foremost, I've been an avid Windows user my entire life and know very little to nothing about Linux, hence the reason for the install. I was told by a bud that openSUSE would be a good start, so I decided to just jump right in. Downloaded and got the .iso loaded up on my thumb drive without a problem. Ran through the install without, what I thought, a hitch. Rebooted and the computer booted straight into Windows. I read through a few articles about trying to repair Grub using GParted and I gave it a shot. First went through (what I believe) is the process of reinstallin...

D2009E 32 bits and Windows 7 64 bits
Hello. I've now installed my D2009E 32 bits version on my new PC which has Windows7 24 bits. Since my customers not yet are on 64 bits I would prefere not to use a 64 bits version of Delphi, which I expect will raise some surprises when porting the application to my customers 32 bits XP. With my first application project ported from my XP 32 bits PC and with Delphi20009E running I get a popup message with this text: bds.exe-bordbk120N.dll Assertion Failure "C!"SetThreadContextfailed")" in ..\win32 src\thread32.cpp at line 434 Continue Execution?

OpenGL 32 bit on Windows 7 64 bit
I have an older OpenGL application using OpenGL 1.4 calls in both software and hardware modes that works fine on 32 bit XP and Win 7 but gives me issues with color depth on Windows 7 64bit. There aren't any errors but it displays fewer colors when it draws to the screen than when it draws to a bitmap. The AMD driver has the screen display set to 32bit color and when I step through the GL context creation whether for HW or SW everything appears correct with the PixelFormatDescriptor set to 8bits per color. GetDeviceCaps confirms that the screen DC is set to 32bit. I'...

Windows 7 and Delphi 7, 32 or 64 bit?
I am in the process of getting a new PC and these days there is a choice between 32 and 64 bit operating system (Win7). I have both Delphi7 Pro and BDS2006, where most of my work tends to still be done in Delphi 7. My question now is: Does Delphi 7 work correctly in Windows 7 x64 or do I have to install the 32 bit version in order to work with Delphi 7? This is about the IDE, not programs created with Delphi, which I already know work fine in Win7x64. I am worried about the impact of new security measures in Win7 and incompatibilities between the Delphi7 debugger and Win7x64..... Bo ...

[Windows 7] Benefit of 64-bit vs 32-bit (?)
I'm contemplating getting Windows 7 (for various reasons I'd rather not discuss here), and am wondering whether to go 64-bit or 32-bit. My current machine runs a Gigabyte GA-M55plus-S3G (rev_1_0) mainboard, 2 GB RAM, and soon to have a Seagate ST32000641AS (2TB) hard drive. I'm not a gamer (at all), and other than database work (MS Access) and photograph hoarding, I'm pretty much an "average" Windows user. -- Any thoughts appreciated. tbl On 8/22/2010 5:02 PM, tbl wrote: > I'm contemplating getting Windows 7 (for various reasons I'd &g...

Groupwise 7 and Outlook 2010 on Windows 7 64-bit coexisting
Hello. I am struggling with having Groupwise 7.0.3 client and outlook 2010 installed on the same Windows 7 64-bit machine. The GW client itself is working well, but not together with Outlook. I remembered installing first Outlook and then Groupwise is a good idea. But I am missing in the mail (32-bit) control panel the check for "always prompt for choosing the profile". It just not there. I can only select the "Novell Groupwise" profile or the "Outlook" profile. Any idea? Wrong WMS ? Thanks for help, Michael On 28.01.2011 19:15, Michael...
