From Windows Vista x64 on, "Sysnative" is a hidden alias for the genuine "System32" folder.

Another possibility is a symbolic link. Automatic redirection of folders is not active for 32-bit programs if the program accesses the folder via a symbolic link. So it is sufficient to define a symbolic link for the folder "%windir%\system32" to access the genuine "%windir%\system32" folder.

Warning!

Symbolic links should be used only by experienced users.
