When you try to save a file in System32 the program needs to disable file system redirector, or Windows will move the file to SysWOW64 automatically. Couldn't find a good API function to determine whether or not a given file is in a directory or one of its subdirectories*, but the method in the patch (which uses string comparison) should work for the vast majority of cases.

* The file system redirector also works on subdirectories of System32.
