Hi,

I'm trying to create two distributions of Creative Suite 5.5 using the toolkit provided by Adobe.

I've created two packages that contain either 32bit or 64bit builds of the software, but Adobe dont differentiate the 64bit from the 32bit upon installation.

I've sort of solved it by modifying the registry entry
HKLM\Software\WOW6432node\Microsoft\Windows\Currentversion\Uninstall\{xxxxxproductcodeetc}
"Displayname" etc.

I've tried distributing the reg key with the package and running a batch file to insert it after the msi instaler has run, but it doesnt work.

What do you suggest?

If you install a 32-bit package on 64-bit OS, the registry would be - HKLM\Software\WOW6432node\Microsoft\Windows\Currentversion\Uninstall\{xxxxxproductcodeetc}

And, for 64-bit package, it would be at - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Currentversion\Uninstall\{xxxxxproductcodeetc}

What is the exact issue with your install?

The issue is that Adobe don't modify the 64bit registry to indicate that CS5.5 is installed, so when the K1000 does it's inventry, it only sees one entry for both versions.

What I was trying to do is install a registry change at the end of the CS5 64bit package install but the batch file instantly applies it before the MSI has installed.

Any tips welcome.
