necros2k7: While the buildbot does have a Win64 build target, this is not intended for end-user usage hence why the downloads page does not list any Windows Installer apart from Win32:

You are correct that there is little advantage for using 64-bit executables over 32-bit currently. However, at some point the older 32-bit build toolchains may be deprecated so this is the developers looking at upsgrade paths for the future and making sure we can swap over if Windows 10, 11 etc. decide to drop support for older 32-bit binaries or do something which makes these problematic.

Closing as WONTFIX.
