Hey Oleg,

I know you are probably STILL busy with Offline Explorer, but, should you return to SO will you be ever adding support for WOW6432Node of the registry for 64 bit machines, many times I have had to manually delete start-up items from that location, as using SO to delete them doesn't work, as Windows just looks and goes.. "Oh, that should be there' and it re-appears in SO.

OK. This is a good point. I will try to implement it soon. Thank you!

Best regards,

I checked the code and the KEY_WOW64_64KEY is already implemented there. All you need is to run Startup Organizer in the priveledged (administrative) mode to delete these programs.

Oh, ok..

Just with there not being a clear indication as to which location the registry entries are located, I just guessed, with what has happening to me, it wasn't implemented.

I current have it running in higher privilege mode when my laptop boots up, but because of the way Windows 8.1 works, I have to authorize it running. A minor inconvenience on startup.

Is there a way to make it show whether it's is WOW64 or regular location? I have looked at all the options, and I can't see the difference?

As I understand, all Registry entries are WOW64 now.

Yes, I understand that it is not convenient to allow administrative mode for an application every time. But there is no other way.

Any changes to the Registry - All Users require that.

Yeah, I get ya.

I did a test, I manually added an entry into the WOW64 tree, and a few seconds later, it was showing in SO.

I still have some apps that put it in the 32 bit tree, but I guess that is application/windows specific.

Thanks for your input and replies.

Yes, maybe. I didn't investigate that deep enough.
