hey guys i want to create a key in the registry from 32bit to 64bit
i want it to be exactly on "SOFTWARE\\MyApps" and not on "\\SOFTWARE\\Wow6432Node\\..."

C++
RegCreateKeyEx(HKEY_CURRENT_USER, "SOFTWARE\\MyApps", 0, NULL, 0, 
      KEY_ALL_ACCESS | KEY_WOW64_64KEY, NULL, 
      &hkey, NULL);

Yes, this would work as you want it to.
With the KEY_WOW64_64KEY flag, your 32-bit application would be using a 64-bit view of the registry.
