# How do I edit x64 bit files on file system?

• Hello,

I’m trying to edit file located under system32 folder in Windows which is being redirected to SysWOW64 since Notepad++ is 32bit process. So how do I edit files in this scenario? For example if I open file under c:\windows\system32\inetsrv\config\redirection.config and edit it in Notepad, the resulting file is placed under C:\Windows\SysWOW64\inetsrv\Config\redirection.config

• Hello Greg,

may I ask you which version of npp you are using as this issue
should have been solved already. Some 5.8… version if I remember correctly.
In the meantime I edited hosts file on a windows7 x64 pc with npp 6.8.7
and do not have the problem you described.

Cheers
