    I believe your solution about using <wow64fsredirection>enable</wow64fsredirection> should work fine. What I would recommend to avoid removing the libraries from the uninstaller would be to unpack the libraries to a temporary directory (either a subdirectory under ${system_temp_directory} or under the ${installdir}) and then manually copy to the final destination using the <copyFile> action (or move them using <renameFile>). The uninstaller will not try to uninstall the libraries placed under the final destination because they were not put there by the unpacking process. Would that work for you?

    We have also fixed the link to the csidl page. Thanks for reporting it.
