32bit and 64bit Widnows system folders


Here are some quick & useful info regarding Windows system folders in 32bit and 64bit:

For 32bit:

%SystemRoot%\system32\

%SystemRoot%\syswow64\


For 64bit:

C:\Windows\system32\

%WinDir%\system32\


For 64bit from 32bit application:

%WinDir%\sysnative\

ExampleWhen accessing Windows 64bit system folder from Visual Studio post build commands (where all versions are actually 32bit), then use %WinDir%\sysnative\ not %WinDir%\system32\.

Hope this helps!
