I have a simple need for an installer to copy a DLL file into C:\Windows\System32 on Windows 10 and add some registry keys.

However specifying the Default Installation Path in InstallForge as "C:\Windows\System32" or "<system>\" for the DLL does not work. Instead, in either case the DLL is copied to C:\Windows\SysWOW64 which does not work for my application.

How can I resolve this? I'm on Windows 10 Pro, 64 bit Version 1511 Nov 2015 update.

Thank you for your prompt help on the matter!

Quick question? Is the dll 32 or 64 bit? I'm not sure if InstallForge is 'bit aware' or not, but maybe that's the reason?
