Python tools not running in ArcGISx6410.2 at 10.2

Hello-

We have found (and keep finding) many tools related to server and mobile that will not run in the 64-bit IDLEs.  Currently, neither the mobile cache creation or synchronization tools will run in the:

[MSC v.1500 64 bit (AMD64)] on win32 IDLE and Shell

but rather will only run in the:

[MSC v.1500 32 bit (Intel)] on win32 IDLE and Shell.  The same is true for some of the server module tools such as  arcpy.server.StageService and arcpy.server.UploadServiceDefinition.  The most frustrating thing of course is that as a developers/scripters, we have no way of knowing which tools will run in which targets!

The only way I have found to work around this obvious oversight is to make a registry change to my desktop IF I have installed the 64-bit background processing module, OR run a seperate installation of AGS10.2 without the said module.

I welcome any comments or suggestions-
Thanks
David
