Just for information

System32 -> C:\Windows\System32 -> 64-bit files
SysWOW64 -> C:\Windows\SysWOW64 -> 32-bit files
Program Files -> C:\Program Files -> Folder for 64-bit program files
Program Files (x86) -> C:\Program Files (x86) -> Folder for 32-bit program files

If you are talking about .NET applications simply verify that you are not targeting x86 in the properties of your project. Change to Any CPU and try.
