Thanks for any help
No it doesnt mean that the itunes x64 is not 64bit. If you try to install the 32bit Itunes, it will not install. Hence there is a 64bit version for x64 systems.
For example, in my case, i have installed 64bit ESET Smart Security antivirus. However, in the taskmgr, it shows ekrn.exe *32. That doesnt mean its not 64bit software.
Also, even if a 64bit program installs itself in Program Files(x86) folder, its still a 64bit compatible software.
