You're likely running wpkg within 32-bit cscript.exe. Make sure you launch 
64-bit cscript.exe from system32 folder.
If you use WPKG Client make sure to install 64-bit WPKG client.

If you launch cscript.exe manually make sure you do this from a 64-bit launcher. 
Or just call it via wrapper.js which is included in WPKG distribution. It calls 
%SystemRoot%\sysnative\ binaries (64-bit) even when launched from 32-bit 
invocation process.

Note: There is nothing WPKG can do to read 64-bit paths running in 32-bit 
cscript.exe. As a result WPKG will report a 32-bit system even when running on 
64-bit system. So Make sure you run the right one.
