Regardless of tomcat5.exe version (32 or 64 bit) on 64-bit windows
they will always use the 32-bit registry.
This allows to have the same configuration if you wish to
run 32 or 64 bit JVM and to have a single 32-bit tomcat5w.exe for management.
Further more we don't need the installers to be aware of 64-bit
