Windows 7: Installing Programs

Installing Programs

When installing programs using a x64 bit operating system, does it matter where I install the program, in the Program Files (x86) folder or the normal Programs Files folder?

Thanks

Only 32 bit programs should go in the x86 folder, but the installer should know where to put the files.
