An app which I am working on right now has some some files going to C:\Program Files (x86)\ directory and some files going to C:\Program Files\ directory. So, without making this app as a 64 bit app (or without having 64 bit components) is there a way we can achieve this? Can we use the ProgrmFiles64Folder value for 32 bit apps? Answers much appreciated.

Can you elaborate on why you want a 32-bit app to use the "C:\Program Files\" folder in a 64-bit installation of Windows? It seems like this will cause more confusion than anything else.

  • No probs.. I have created a 64 bit application to achieve this. So, no confusions. The app works perfectly fine. I included the files which go to C:\Program Files (x86) in 32 bit components in the app.
