registry entry creation issue under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node

we were providing 32 bit installer to customers for the past few years and customers used to install it on 64 bit machines , now we got a requirement that they need 64 bit installer only, so for this, I changed "Template Summary" from Intel;1033 to x64;1033 and saved, I created my package and when I installed it on 64 bit machines, it is still creating my product entries under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node.

in earlier releases 32 bit installer on 64 bit machines and creating product entries under wow6432Node was fine, but now we do not need wow6432Node entries any more. it should create product entries under normal hive(HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE) only.

am I missing anything to change apart from "Template Summary", or somewhere my installscript is changing any values, our project is in basic msi. please help me on this.

thanks in advance
