As a work around you can change the patch msp file component to 64bit using orca or installshield and then try to install the patch it will update in 64 registry location.

OR

Try using minor upgrade via patch design.

Thanks for the reply!!

I had already done the same(Updating component table manually) but problem is we need to automate the process as there are lots of patches.

Do you know if there is any way to update component table programmatically in .msp file?(maybe some vbscript or something)
