Discovery bug in MP Author SP2 when discovering the 32-Bit registry keys

There is a bug in Silects MP Author SP2 tool.  If you select a 32-Bit registry key for discovery.



When you save the MP it will automatically remove the Wow6432Node


Most 32-Bit applications don’t write to multiple locations so It won’t discover anything.



**As pointed out by Kevin Holman there is an XML element called <registryview>32bit</registryview> that will accomplish the same thing but will work with 32-bit servers and 64-bit servers.**

Open up the XML and add the <registryview>32bit</registryview>

My XML would look like this.

<Path>SOFTWARE\Research In Motion\BlackBerry Enterprise Server\Setup\ConfigProductCode</Path>

More info on this can be found here.


The following workaround will work as well, but is not perfect as you might have apps installed on both 32-bit and 64-bit servers.

Open up the XML and edit it back to what it should be.




I have reported this to Silect.  Hopefully they will fix it in the next version.
