Hi

     I have a 32 bit application and I use NSIS installer to make a setup for the same. Now, when I use this setup in a 64 bit OS, the application goes in registry under the key "HKLM\Software\Wow6432Node\MyApplication"

     Is ther any way using which I can put my application under "HKLM\Software" and not under "HKLM\Software\Wow6432Node\MyApplication" ?

Thank You

This is by design, if you install 32 bit appliacations on 64 bit operating system, this is where they are installed.
