Problem with HKLM & Wow6432Node

Hi,
I have a small utility I want to make portable.
It's pretty straightforward and I had the launcher working in no time.
Well.. except it doesn't work !
The reason I finaly found for it is that PAL writes the key to HKLM\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\App when the registry key I want to write should go to HKLM\SOFTWARE\App ! The App reads HKLM\SOFTWARE\App that doesn't exist.
I've seen some posts about this issue but all of them very old.
Is there a workaround or am I out of luck ?

64-bit App

This is an issue with a 64-bit app. At the moment you unfortunately need to handle it with custom code with SetRegView 64. You can see this in the custom launcher code included with IrfanView Portable and ccPortable to go from.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!

Nice

Glad to hear it worked. I was hoping those two examples would be helpful.
