In this case I think it refers to the new experimental WoW64 mode. So no changes unless you build Wine with --enable-archs which isn't used by default yet, I think.

in good news at least compiling bi-arch is possible now in my case:

./configure --enable-archs=i386,x86_64

and works curiously dont show icons in folders on appetizer

32bits app



64bits app



almost forget using this method wine binaries are installed in usr/local/bin and wine64 dont stay anymore, only wine and run both apps 32bit and 64bits

All versions since wine 8.10 mess up mouse movement in Deus Ex: Human Revolution - Director’s Cut. It gets stuck at the edges so the character can't be moved by 360° anymore.
