Can t import registry from a x32 application to my x64 OS

Hi all this is my first post in the forum.I have windows 7 professional x64.I am using an application called smart install maker Smart Install Maker - Custom setup files made easy.This software generally creates setups (i make exe files).It s a x32 application.I create setups where i copy some files in disk drives and some registry keys.I describe this just to let you know what i am doing.
When i create the exe file and run it the files are copied correctly but my registry entries are not.For example i insert a reg key (in the program) in :
and through the program (through the exe i did) is set in :
It adds a Wow6432Node path more and i don t need it.I ve read that x32 applications do this but this make my application not to work correctly.If i export the 1st key and merge it, it is set properly in the path i want, but through smart install it does the 2nd import.I ve read articles about reflection,redirection and about default file type associations in this forum but couldnt make it work.

You are my last chance.Thx in advance ! :)
