RegistrySearch/@Win64 documentation bug #4215
RegistrySearch/@Win64 documentation at http://wixtoolset.org/documentation/manual/v3/xsd/wix/registrysearch.html says:
The default value depends on the value of the Package/@platform attribute: if the @platform attribute value is 'x86', the default @Win64 attribute value is 'no'; otherwise, the default value is 'yes'.
But my tests with WIX 3.6.3303 showed that default is always 'no' regardless of Package/@platform attribute value. For example I have Package/@platform value 'x64' and RegistrySearch element without @Win64 attribute. I compile msi and check its content with Orca. RegLocator table contains record corresponding to my RegistrySearch element but its Type does not contain msidbLocatorType64bit set.
Blair Murri confirmed in wix-sers maillist that this is a doc bug.
