In that case, couldn't there be a web installer, which checks
operating system version, and downloads the correct version based
on that information? Firefox for example does this.

I think we
discussed this at length a while ago, and consensus is that
it is better to keep them as one for ease of portability.
Couldn't these issues be solved by having two installers (32
and 64 bit), instead of one?

As far as I"m aware, there are currently no plans to create
an x64 version of NVDA. No one stops anyone from putting
some research into it, but I think the benefits it would
have are mostly theoretical ones. It should be noted that we
wouldn't be able to cover x86 systems with such a build of
NVDA, so that's probably the most major reason not to
investigate it further at this time.
