### Needs to write to 64-bit registry but get redirected

Hi,

On Windows 7 x64, I need to write the autoadmin login keys direct to

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon\

but the compiled exe is only 32-bit and therefore Windows is redirecting the application to

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon\

which means the settings dont have any effect.

What do I need to do to get the application to write the keys to where I want them to be? Can I compile a 64-bit application?
