    How To Avoid SysWOW64 and Virtual Store?


    I have win10 64 bit.

    I want to run a dos type batch file that will run an exe file that will download file

    When I do it the downloads get put in syswow64 though by rights they should go into the folder that the .exe was run from.

    Following some googled advice I moved the batch file to c:\windows\system and ran it from there.

    now it deposits the files in appdata\local\virtual store

    Just one time it put the files in the right place. a test run of three files. I then went and edited the batch file to run a complete download of 26 files and it started putting them in virtual store.

    i don't know what I did wrong. I can't get it back to performing properly.

    Any help on how it should be straightforwardly done?

    :)

    Hi,

    Welcome to Microsoft Community!

    I would suggest you to clear the cache memory of the Windows Store app.

    Try the following steps:


    • Press Windows + R keys to open Run window

    • Type wsreset.exe and hit enter.


    Now try to open Windows store and see if that helps.
