    [BUG?] Intel's Graphics Installer changes/deletes "CurrentControlSet\Control\Windows SystemDirectory" String

    Quad5Ny

      During installation Intel's Graphics driver installer changes the "SystemDirectory" string under "HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Windows" from "%SystemRoot%\system32" to "C:\Windows\SysWOW64".  On top of that when you uninstall the driver it completely delete the string.

       

      I'm not sure how significant changing/deleting the string is, but the string is a default part of Windows Vista/7/8.

       

      I've attached install/uninstall logs.  But it seems like a really quick fix would be to delete the following section from Setup.if2:

      [Registry]
      operation=create
      root=HKLM
      path=System\CurrentControlSet\Control\Windows
      value=SystemDirectory
      data=%system%
      type=sz
      sequence=100
      group=GFX
