256986 Description of the Microsoft Windows Registry

NoteThe registry in 64-bit versions of Windows XP and Windows Server 2003 is divided into 32-bit and 64-bit subkeys. Many of the 32-bit subkeys have the same names as their 64-bit counterparts, and vice versa. The default 64-bit version of Registry Editor that is included with 64-bit versions of Windows XP and Windows Server 2003 displays the 32-bit subkeys in the following registry subkey, or "hive":

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node
