in thread Win32::Registry not working

I had the same problem after switching to Win32::TieRegistry. I get this on the server:
D:\>perl -V Summary of my perl5 (revision 5 version 8 subversion 8) configuration: Platform: osname=MSWin32, osvers=4.0, archname=MSWin32-x86-multi-thread [...] D:\> path SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Microsoft SQL Server subkeys: values: 100\, 90\, DACFramework\, DACProjectSystem\, RefCount\, Servic +es\, SharedManagementObjects\, SqlPubWiz\, TSqlLanguageService\ Can't read SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Microsoft SQL Server\Instance Names key: + The system could not find the environment option that was entered
However, running regedit and exporting the registry gives me this:
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Microsoft SQL Server\Instance N +ames] [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Microsoft SQL Server\Instance N +ames\OLAP] "MSSQLSERVER"="MSAS10_50.MSSQLSERVER" [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Microsoft SQL Server\Instance N +ames\RS] "MSSQLSERVER"="MSRS10_50.MSSQLSERVER" [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Microsoft SQL Server\Instance N +ames\SQL] "MSSQLSERVER"="MSSQL10_50.MSSQLSERVER"
Upgrading to ActiveState Perl 5.16.1 (the most current version), fixed everything. Curiously, the archname above says "x86" but i downloaded and installed the 64-bit version. I'm now wondering if the 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the Win32 registry APIs see different things.
