When Saxon is installed on a 64-bit machine, the installation script adds the relevant registry keys to the path \Software\Wow6432Node\Saxonica\Saxon. Saxon at execution time looks for the key in \Software\Saxonica\Saxon. Because of the way the code is compiled through IKVMC, the automatic redirection of this lookup that is done for 32-bit applications does not happen, so the registry key is not found. A patch is being raised that causes Saxon to look in both locations (which is probably more reliable than trying to detect which location is appropriate)
