We are preparing to migrate our Installscript projects to Installshield X and while doing some research, I encountered this thread:

http://community.installshield.com/showthread.php?threadid=128546

"The InstallScript engine is 32-bit based and does no support 64-bit platforms. For example, if you make a call to CopyFile() and try to copy a file to the system directory, the engine will copy it to the WOW system directory. I'm not that familiar with 64-bit platforms, but I believe the registry uses WOW for 32-bit calls as well."

Will this be a problem for 64-bit platforms using Installshield X? It does claim 64-bit support, but I think DevStudio 9 did too.
