Default WSH Book examples on Windows 7


I hope this is the correct forum - I couldn't find one for Windows Script Host questions, and the Wrox website's database no longer lists this book in its search function.

I bought a copy of the Wrox Press Windows Script Host Programmer's Reference by Dino Esposito a few years ago and have used Dino's provided sample code and WSH components in my own scripts on Windows 98 and XP for a good few years.

Now I've replaced my old Win XP system with a Win 7 64-bit one and I'd like to install the components onto there to use in my scripts - unfortunately, Microsoft seem to have altered the directory structure under the Windows folder so that the old system32 folder contains 64-bit system stuff and the SysWOW64 folder contains the 32-bit ones.

Has anyone here been using these components on Windows 7 64-bit edition and, if so, how did you do it? I know the installer program allows you to change the install folder path for the component DLLs, but the installer script has its code point to the Windows\system32 folder.

Is it safe to change this to the Windows\SysWOW64 one since all of Dino's code was compiled under 32-bit Windows?
