Wrong registry key hive for x64

#1 Post by vduvernet » 2021-06-16 07:17

Hello,

I think there's a mistake between the Registry hive used by Filezilla 3.54.1.

When you install the x64 version, the registry hive used is :
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\FileZilla Client
But it should be in the x64 hive :
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\FileZilla Client

The install path is correct for x64 :
C:\Program Files\FileZilla FTP Client
and x86 :
C:\Program Files (x86)\FileZilla FTP Client

(so this way, we're able to install both x86 & x64 version on the same computer. (but we should add the x64 string in the Add/remove program)

This is intentional. You are not supposed to install multiple versions of FileZilla on the same machine. There is absolutely zero reason to install both a 32bit and 64bit version. First thing the 32bit version does on the next update is to replace itself with the 64bit one.
