KACE 14.0's 64-Bit Windows Agent and scripts that refer to c:\windows\sysnative, HKLM64, ETC?

Greetings, I noticed this in the release notes for 14.0

  • 64-bit Agent for Windows and All Linux Flavors: Agents for both Windows and Linux are now exclusively 64-bit. This simplification significantly eases and streamlines the authoring and delivering workloads across all operating systems.


Am I correct that the agent will now be getting installed to c:\program Files\ , opposed to c:\program files (86) and not be subject to the path redirection of a 32-bit process?

If so, how will the agent handle existing scripts, Custom Inventory Rules and anything else that refers to the redirected paths such as%systemdrive%\Windows\sysnative\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0powershell.exe ?


Thanks!
