[wix-users] BurnBootstrapper is creating entries in WOW6432

Burn is a 32 bit process. There is no need to have burn be 64 bit, and it would lead to obtuse errors if someone downloaded your 64 bit installer and tried running it on a 32 bit machine.

When i installed the exe which was developed using Burn, all the items in the chain are getting installed as 64 bit, creating registry entries in 64 Bit

But the Burn EXE entry is getting created as 32 Bit in WOW6432Node

How do i create that entry in 64 Bit Registry instead of WOW6432Node
