That didn't happen for you?
That just makes Internet Explorer (32 bit) the default browser. If you click a link in an e-mail or any thing else that launches IE from Windows 7 the 32 bit version will launch, not the 64 bit version. Windows 7 64 bit has both versions of IE but Microsoft won't let you set the 64 bit version as default.
I found a way to make this work, no registry hacks, etc. I just renamed the Internet Explorer directory in program files (x86), then copied over the IE dir from program files. Works great, all links open in IE9 x64. This is easy to do and easy to undo. No harm, no foul.
