64 bit registry Installshield

Hi,

I've got an installer that runs on a 32-bit and 64-bit OS. However I'm trying to test if SQL is installed on the machine but when I read the registry on Windows Server 2008 R2 it reads from the 32-bit registry instead of the 64 bit to check SQL Server 2008. Is there a way in installscript to tell the installer to explicitly check the 64 bit registry even if the installer is running as a 32-bit application?

thanks,
Robert.

Thanks, that's helpful information. I was able to fix my problem by using ServiceExistsService instead of checking the registry and it seems be easier.

thank,
Robert
