Why is Provisioning Manager installed under \Program Files and not Program Files (x86)?

CA Identity Suite CA Identity Manager


We are upgrading our provisioning manager client we are seeing the following issue:

the old one is still there in the following location:

C:\Program Files (x86)\CA\Identity Manager\Provisioning Manager

but the new one is installed in this location:

C:\Program Files\CA\Identity Manager\Provisioning Manager

I am looking to know why.


Release : 14.4

Component : Provisioning Manager


Previous older releases were 32-bit.  Your current 14.4 release is 64-bit.  

On Windows, 32-bit applications are installed under \Program Files (x86).  64-bit applications are installed in \Program Files. 

Here is online information on the 32-bit vs 64-bit topic and how 64-bit applications are installed on more recent versions of Windows.,to%20Program%20Files%20(x86).
