Resolution

This is fixed in version 11.2.4 - see TID 7012027 "ZENworks Configuration Management 11.2.4 - update information and list of fixes" which can be found at http://www.novell.com/support/search.do?usemicrosite=true&searchString=7012027

Cause

The cause of this bug was that only Windows Patch primary was pushing a 64 bit lm.detection.exe to agents.  To confirm whether an exe is x32 or x64 is to use dumpbin (from Microsoft).
