If a Process Start action is configured on a 32-bit application running on a 64-bit machine to access the registry to set registry values (for example), the registry access will be redirected to the Wow6432Node.
This is by design. Although Environment Manager detects the bitness of the target application, it is Windows which redirects the registry access.
See http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/desktop/aa384232%2528v=vs.85%2529.aspx for further information.
If you require the process start actions to not be redirected you can use one of two methods:
- Move the registry actions to the Logon node.
- Add a Process Start action to execute a 64-bit application when the 32-bit application launches. You can then add the registry actions as Process Start actions of the 64-bit application. If required, AppSense Support can supply a dummy executable which does nothing which can be used for this purpose.
