    Shockwave installation location on 64 bit windows


      I installed Shockwave on both window 7 x64 and win2k8 x64


      From the windows uninstall registry key [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\Adobe Shockwave Player]


      I have:

      DisplayName, Adobe Shockwave Player 11.6

      UninstallString, "C:\Windows\system32\Adobe\Shockwave 11\uninstaller.exe"

      DisplayIcon, ( C:\Windows\system32\Adobe\Shockwave 11\SwInit.exe,0 )


      HelpLink, http://www.adobe.com/support/shockwave

      InstallLocation, C:\Windows\system32\Adobe

      Publisher, ( Adobe Systems, Inc. )

      URLInfoAbout, http://www.adobe.com

      URLUpdateInfo, http://www.adobe.com/software/shockwaveplayer/index.html

      VersionMajor, 11

      VersionMinor, 1


      I found that the InstallLocation, C:\Windows\system32\Adobe is not actually exist in my system, and the actual installation location is: C:\Windows\SysWOW64\Adobe\Shockwave 11. And of course hte UninstallString doesn't work as well.


      May I know Is this a bug? Or is there any reason that make it unconsistent with the system?
