[wix-users] SWID tag in 64 bit MSI

I have a MSI setup project which can be built either as a x86 or a x64 package (for the purpose of installing a native driver).   When using Wix and adding a swid:Tag/@InstallDirectory with a directory property derived from a property initialized by Burn to the value of ProgramFiles6432Folder ) and when building the x64 package I get:

error LGHT0204: ICE80: This 32BitComponent tag098E26650654137FDD70F9C99051DDE9 uses 64BitDirectory WixTagFolder [local path to .wixproj]

A build of the same project configured as x86 is successful.   Is there a way to place the swidtag folder in the drivers cache location on a 64 bit system?
