See the 64-bit/32-bit registry view options for the action.

From the document previously mentioned, it's unclear what the Windows registry API implementation does for 32-bit clients accessing a remote 64-bit computer. The behavior you're describing is consistent with the first statement at (If the client is a 32-bit application, it accesses the 32-bit registry view). You might try checking the Access 64-bit registry view if not already checked. Otherwise, you may need to use the 64-bit version of Visual Build on 64-bit Windows client to access a remote 64-bit registry view.
