Program Files and Program File (x86) RRS feed

  • Question


    I have installed a 32 bit .net application MSI on Vista 64 bit OS. When i installed my , few files are copied into Program files and few are not copied or extracted from MSI. The files are not copied but the root folder is created in both the program files folders.


    It is said that Vista takes care of moving the files into either Program Files(64 bit) or Program Files (x86)(32 bit). However my application is 32 bit. Accordingly all my files should be copied to Program Files (x86) and has to work smoothly. This does not happen. Instead my installation failed.


    How do i overcome this issue? Can i force my application to copy files into Program Files?
