Copy files in 64 bit programs directory from 32 bit installation msi

Hi

My installation package is 32 bit installation. Please note that having separate 64 bit installation is not the option available for me.

My installation detects installation of another 64 bit third part software and is required to copy few files in installation directory of third party application.

Since my package is 32 bit the installation copies files in program files(86) directory while its expected to copy in program files directory.

As per installer documentation its correct.

Is there any manual work around to copy the files by using script / batch file etc ?

Please note that when i create patch for this release installation should be correctly able to patch the files.

Thanks in advance.

Why not just mark the component as a 64-Bit component so its installs into the correct directory? By default components are marked 32-bit so will also be redirected to 'Program Files (x86)' regardless of if you point them to 'Program Files'.
