Right. Well, let's see what our MSVC packaging looks like closer to v6
rollout. I think we will probably need it for Python anyways.
For Windows 10 this should not be an issue:
Although few OEMs install 32-bit versions, I imagine that there are a
number of board houses that run 32-bit versions to maintain compatibility
with their older control software.
