This also means storing at least two binaries on the server, which might not be ideal if one wishes to create a portable copy that can run anywhere.

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?

Another downside is that x64 NVDA build won’t run on ARM64 on older Windows 10 releases because the emulator only supports x86 32-bit, although moving to 64-bit means a native ARM build becomes theoretically possible.
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.
