"A win64 WINEARCH is meant to be able to run 32-bit Windows applications as well as 64-bit ones."

Not necessarily. From Wine64 page: "There are still some pointer to int32 casts that need to be fixed. Most of these issue an appropriate warning. " T1nk3r3r (talk) 04:43, 18 July 2012 (UTC)

WINEARCH=win32

Wine seems to treat empty folders as win64 prefix folders, making it confusing to create win32 prefixes in empty folders. It gives the error [wine: WINEARCH set to win32 but '/home/wine/photoshop' is a 64-bit installation]. Perhaps we should add a note about this?

Yup, feel free to add that note. --Svenstaro 12:24, 20 January 2012 (EST)
