[Condor-users] Issue on Windows 64 and querying the registry

My "condor" executable on Windows is a .BAT file.
I use the Windows command "reg" in the .BAT file to query the registry on the execute nodes to find installed programs before launching the .exe to do the real work.

There is a problem on Windows 64-bit -  condor must be executing the .BAT file as a 32-bit program which only gets a "32-bit" view of the registry, so the "reg" command cannot find the 64-bit installed programs ( it only sees the 32-bit ones).

A good reason to make condor 64-bit on XP 64.
