I want to be able to create LUA scripts that read the Windows registry on Windows 8.1. I'm having problems with Lua For Windows (LFW) reading/writing to "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Classes\VirtualStore\MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node" in stead of HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE...".

Will LUA programs run under LDT's LUA interprestor be running in 32 bit or 64 bit mode?

I'm not sure to understand.

But if you ask for the lua interpreters embedded in LDT (lua 5.1 and lua 5.2) ? it run in the arch of your eclipse/ldt.
(if you run a 32 bit eclipse with 32 bit java vm, interpreter is in 32bits)

But it seems you use Lua For Windows so you don't care about the arch of embedded interpreter. In the case the arch depends of your version of Lua For Windows.

I was planning to switch to the Lua interpreter included with LDT; however, after reading more of the documentation, I see that I should be able to use LDT with Lua for Windows.

You did answer my question. I'm running 64 bit eclispse and java sdk.
