How is everyone handing the x86 and x64 issue, it seems to me like KACE need to have 2 associtated files for x86 and x64, because it does not diferentiate between the 2 in the software inventory.  Do I pretty much always have to make a custom software inveotry item for them or is there something I am missing that would make thigs easier.

Answer Summary:
Either have two different managed installs, or build a script to check the bitness and run the appropriate MSI.

To the best of my knowledge, you need to have two different managed installs, or you can write a script to check which bitness you want for the machine in question and run the appropriate MSI.  I tend to lean toward the former so that I'm not pushing huge packages, half of which the machine doesn't need.

For help on how to best work with two different installs, you can check my post here: http://www.itninja.com/blog/view/distinguishing-and-versioning-similar-software-in-the-kace-1000

You can also build a OS check package that checks the OS architecture of the workstation and accordingly downloads the managed install for the OS type. This would also help you keep a check on the space as well
