Brian Curtin <curtin at acm.org> added the comment:

Wow6432Node registry entries are for applications running WOW - aka 32-bit applications on a 64-bit platform. The 64-bit Python installer is placing its entries in the appropriate location.

See the winreg documentation for information that might help fixing this setuptools bug, in particular this section: http://docs.python.org/py3k/library/winreg#bit-specific
