Thanks for taking a few minutes to test it.

I guess you didn't add the '(x86)' string in the installer yourself...
Was it specified in the text field when you selected the install path?

It should have.
Looks an issue related to the NSIS utility we are using to create the installer.

while $PROGRAMFILES64 points to C:\Program Files. Use $PROGRAMFILES64 when installing x64

Easy to fix... :)

I wished I had set up the proper set of plugins on the first shot, but it's hard when you're
doing things blindly...

I'll try to find a PC with a 64 Bit Windows to test this and fix it.

Thanks for having tested this version, I hope to get back to you with a working one very soon...
