Windows packaging embeds 32bit Java, and it makes process management malfunctional on 64bit systems

      Description

      We offer only a single Windows package for 32 bits, but there are known issues when 32bit Java is used on 64bit machines. E.g. WinP (and hence the core) cannot terminate processes correctly: https://github.com/kohsuke/winp#platform-support

      So Windows packaging is bogus OOTB. I propose two options:

      • Offer separate packaging for 32bit and 64bit versions
      • Deprecate 32bit packaging and ship 64bit only

            The last time I checked, which is admittedly years ago, bulk of the Windows users were still running 32bit Windows. Did that situation change?

            Kohsuke Kawaguchi Yes, it changed. 64bit is widely used now, especially on the server side.
