Hi folks,

I have created a bundle using Visual Studio 2019 and the build configuration is x86. My bootstrapper bundles vc++ redistributable and an MSI(32-bit). When I install the bootstrapper it creates 2 registry entries , one in the 64-bit registry hive for the bootstrapper and one in the 32 bit registry hive for the MSI.
Why does the bootstrapper create the uninstall key in the 64-bit registry even though it's compiled as 32-bit? Is there anyway for me to force it to create it in the 32-bit registry?
