We ship code that uses node.js on a desktop that uses native modules. On windows we need both 32-bit and 64-bit windows and we prefer using a single build machine that builds both the versions. We are currently using the manual approach where we specify the download URL to get the 32 bit version while it picks up the 64-bit version automatically.
It would be great if that could be an optional parameter(in the pipeline script). 32 bit versions can be compiled and prepared from 64 bit build machines.
