Install files to System32 folder with Installshield Limited for Visual Studio 2015

I have Installshield Limited for Visual Studio 2015 and creating an installer to be installed on 64-bit machines.  As part of the install, I need to dump a few files in the System32 folder and COM register them.  I have read that the limited edition does not allow you to create 64-bit installers, so is there a way I can accomplish this?  

 

Thanks

Hi @janderscu ,

 

  Installshield limited edition wont support 64 bit installer. But as a work around, if you want to copy a few files in the System32 folder and COM register them, you can do it through a custom action in your limited edition project. 

Need to write your own EXE or a VB script custom action, to copy files from the installed location to the System32 folder and register them. And the same for cleanup while uninstalling.
