Simply put, you cant. When changing from 32>>>64 or 64>>>32, a clean (format) install is required.

Whatever that registry tweak is, bypassing something that isn't allowed is unethical and may cause problems. There's a 64-bit version of ESET which you should be installing instead of the 32bit one. Windows 64bit allows 32bit application to be run (through WoW64). If the program does not allow you to install for reasons other than "a 64bit version is available," then a bypass won't do you good. This isn't usual though, and I've never experienced this.
