64bit Creates a folder for x86
I installed the 64bit Window 7 Ultimate. When I installed a game that run on 32bit, it created a folder 'Program File x86' in my C: drive.
Every other application I installed is defaulted to install into x86. I guess it is because the last application I installed was a x86 compatible only.
My question is, when I install new programs, should I set the path to use the 64 bit Program Files directory instead of the default x86. Does installing into the x86 folder only run the application in 32bit mode?
I'm a bit confused on this. Any advise would help.
