Default 64 Bit windows is the problem

Now I'm no expert in Windows 7 or any other OS after Windows XP... But it would make sense to me for Microsoft to push their 64 bits operative system first and thus make it the default registry.

(Source of my findings)
As a huge fan of the ORIGINAL TTD i have allways tried to keep it with me on new systems, I have found that the runme! registry fix used under XP also works in Windows 7 as long as you are running a 32 bit version. The problem occurs once you try it in a 64 bit version. Then the registry commands does not seem to work.

Inside the file the following commands are executed:
REGEDIT4

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\FISH Technology Group\Transport Tycoon Deluxe]
"Language"=dword:00000000
"Installed"=dword:00000003
"HDPath"=".\\"
"UpdateMode"=dword:00000002
"RetraceSync"=dword:00000000
"MousePointer"=dword:00000000
"MidiType"=dword:00000003
"FullScreen"=dword:00000001
"ForceDIBSection"=dword:00000000
"SafeMode"=dword:00000001
"DisplayModeNumber"=dword:00000004

Why they dosn't work on 64 bit, and how to fix it is outside my knowledge. Would be happy if anyone could produce a quickfix.
