Parth Chandra commented on DRILL-4239:
--------------------------------------

Kristine, can we document this? It's is unlikely that we will be able to support Drill on
32-bit Windows any time soon.

> Winutils.exe has been compiled to run on the 64 bit version of windows.  For this reason,
some part of the documentation that suggest that Drill can run on 32bit Windows must be fixed.
 Furthermore, although few user run 64 bit windows these days, it would be helpful to make
this requirement more explicit.  In particular, rapid installation of Windows on VirtualBox
will often result in 32 bit version being installed by default, since it's the preselected
default during installation process.
