32-Bit CPL's are not found when searching in the Start Menu


Consider the following scenario

- You have a 64-bit Operating System installed

- You search for a 32-bit Control Panel Applet (CPL) (located in the Control Panel) from the Start Menu

In this scenario, the 32-bit CPL is not found although it contains the string you searched for.


This is by design. The product does not enumerate 32-bit CPL's to be found from the Start Menu.


The Control Panel applet in question should still be available from within Control Panel. Manufacturers should be encouraged to create 64-bit CPL's for inclusion in 64-bit versions of the operating system.
