        Description

        For 7ux, it is noticed with 64-bit jre on 64-bit Windows, the incorrect path for DisableSponsor flag registered

        * Expected: 'DisableSponsor' value under 32-bit registry branch:
        HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/SOFTWARE/Wow6432Node/JreMetrics

        * Actual: DisableSponsor' value found under 64-bit registry branch:
        HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/SOFTWARE/JreMetrics

        Also, while we are fixing this, we should evaluate whether it is necessary to include the suppress sponsor option in 64-bit Java control panel? Note that, sponsor offers have never been offered with JRE bundle, only with 32-bit JRE bundle


        *** Tested Environment:
        - x64 Win 7, x64 Win Vista
        - 64-bit jre 7u65-b14 promotion

        *** Steps to reproduce:
        - Install latest 64-bit JRE 7u65-b14 on 64-bit Windows
        - Invoke Java control panel and select to suppress sponsor offer

        If you see DisableSponsor' value registered under 64-bit registry branch:
        HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/SOFTWARE/JreMetrics

        the issue is reproducible
