How to make 64 bit registry edits

afrend asked
Last Modified: 2016-04-08
I have been rolling out Windows 10 64 bit installations from a media package rather than Windows Update installer.
I notice now that the package installer causes a automatic locking screen condition that can't be over ridden in Settings.
It was suggested to make a registry edit to cure that.
See the attachment.
The stupid question is...on a 64 bit system, do I need to make this edit as a 64 bit QWORD and NOT a 32 bit DWORD?
Thank you.
