I'm exporting registry table using a batch file only contains one line below:

REGEDIT /e C:\reg.reg HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\

When I call system from 32 compiled perl to run the batch file :


I'm still automatically redirected to the Wow6432Node I didn't want. What can I do?When I run the command on cmd.exe instead of in Perl, that's just what I want.

I have to say, the WOW64 is very inconvenient for sript writer. Calling Win API from script is much inconvenient, opposed as in C++.

From my case, though my perl is 32 bit(I have to use 32bit Perl), I initiate a system Perl function such as in C++ to call an external command, a batch file, which I deliberately try walking around the 32bit caller.

I'm using win7.
