The Software Delivery and Asset Management agents are 32-bit applications.
In a 64-bit OS the folder %windir%\System32 is reserved for 64-bit applications. When a 32-bit application attempts to access this they are redirected to %windir%\SysWOW64.
This results in the 32-bit version of the application being called.
In some instances this will cause the application to fail as it cannot perform the requested action.
For example the 32-bit DISM.EXE cannot service a running 64-bit operating system and you will receive the error:
"Deployment Image Servicing and Management tool
You cannot service a running 64-bit operating system with a 32-bit version of DISM.
Please use the version of DISM that corresponds to your computer's architecture."
