Install program for 32 bit app on 64 bit OS

I have a currently working installation program (developed on Windows7 32-Bit) that installs a 32-Bit application.

I need to install my 32-Bit application on a Windows7 64-Bit machine.

When I execute the current installer, the program seems to hang at nsExec::Exec commands.

I have seen other posts with similar problems, but no real "solution".

Ideas? My head hurts.

How about providing a example command that fails or a link to the similar posts?

Have you checked in Process Explorer and/or Process Monitor to see if the child process is started correctly? Does it start but never finish? Are you starting a 64 or 32 bit program? Is this program somewhere in %windir% or %programfiles%?

This works fine for me on Win8-x64:
nsExec::ExecToLog '"arp.exe" -a'
