I have entered a SR on this but just seeing if everyone else is running into
this on Win7x64 devices.

As an example if i try to deploy remediation of the 'System Management -
Disable Java Update for Java JRE (Disabled)' patch on a Win7x64 device I end
up with EnableJavaUpdate value in the wrong registry area.
HKLM\SOFTWARE\JavaSoft\Java Update\Policy\EnableJavaUpdate

I should say this would disable 64bit java update but not 32bit java update
but if you look in the patch management debug.log you see it is looking in
the Wow6432Node(32bit) key area for detection of this patch.

For this patch to be totally correct and disable updates for 64 and 32 bit
java both of the following values would need to be wrote.

HKLM\SOFTWARE\JavaSoft\Java Update\Policy\EnableJavaUpdate
HKLM\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\JavaSoft\Java Update\PolicyEnableJavaUpdate

This disconnect between where values are wrote to the registry and what is
being looked for by patch management seems to hold true for most of the
system management patches I have tried so far on 64bit machines.
