#11402 closed defect (wontfix)

v2.1.2 has a "64 bit" download which is seemingly only 32 bit

With the maintenance release v2.1.2 out, the download page has "Windows Installer (32 and 64 bit) (37.4M Win32 .exe mirrorlist sha256)", but like it says in brackets the file name is called win32.exe.

If you meant the installer is 32-bit but it actually installs 64-bit files, I think it's confusing to call the installer 32 bit.

If there's no 64 bit version, please remove the "and 64 bit" part from the description.

The installer is 32 bit, but it includes both the 32 bit and the 64 bit. The port is called "Win32" internally. "Win32" is the platform name and covers both the 32 bit and the 64 bit platforms since the API itself is called Win32 by Microsoft - there's no "Win64" API.

We have no plans changing the platform name at the moment.
