Read registry

I am seeing some weird behavior reading the registry on one server, other servers seem fine but this one is strange

I am trying to find if a software package is installed and I am searching in
SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstal l\

But the values returned are not from this location but from
SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVers ion\Uninstall

Why is the Wow6432Node being returned and I am not asking for it. The build machine is 2003 x86 server the server I am calling is 2008 R2 x64. Now this works fine on other 2008 R2 x64 servers but for some reason this one is not returning the right node.

I am using the 32 version of VB8 see below
