Discovery don't read registry key on Windows 7 64-bit

Hi,
I have Alloy Discovery Version: 6.5.0, Build: 3416.
I've created Registry Key Field to scan registry for several keys.
1.
HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\PowerShell\1\PowerShellEngine
read PowerShellVersion and it works correctly.
2.
HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WindowsUpdate
In this key I want to read SusClientID Value
This scan returns <Unable to open registry key>

We have several hundred of hosts in our network and this problem seems to be depending on OS architecture. In 32 bits Windows systems everything is OK but on 64-bit is not.
This problem was tested on Windows 7 64bit and Windows Server 2008 64bit.
Audit was performed from Alloy Discovery and by the Alloy Inventory Analyzer for Windows Version: 5.4.0.1610

Does anyone know how to resolve this problem?

Not sure about the issue, but I know Alloy released version 5.6.0 of the audit tools. Not sure if this issue is caused by being a couple versions behind or not. I'd download them and test.
