    Hi,

    When I check the dependencies I see that the dll point to the system32
    folder and not to syswow64.
    I thought that applications installed under program files (x86) always
    use the syswow64 folder?

  2. What happens, I believe, is that the dependency shows AS THE DLL sees the
    file system. So, to the DLL, system32 is correct, since it sees SysWOW64 as
    system32.
