x64 setup use wow6432node in registry

Reported by: sw-deploy Owned by:
Priority: normal Component: FileZilla Client
Keywords: Cc:
Component version: Operating system type: Windows
Operating system version: 21H2


The x64 setup writes registry keys under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node.

There are two keys:

  • HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\FileZilla Client

If the software is x64 it should not use the WOW6432Node key.

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\FileZilla 3 will be created after the install for 'fzshellext'

This is intentional and cannot be changed for compatibility reasons.

Please could you provide for which compatibility reasons this can not be changed?

Obviously coexistence with older versions and the 32bit version.
