RE: 32-Bit installation in 64-Bit Windows 7 is now showing contextual menu

I run Windows 7 x64 and use XYplorer as a file manager instead of Windows Explorer because it has a lot more functionality; I really dislike Windows Explorer. But XYplorer is a x32 app and neither the context menus nor the icons appear in XYplorer if the x64 version of Tortoise is used, therefore I use the 32 bit version of TortoiseSVN and it works perfectly in the x32 XYplorer.

I also installed the x64 bit version of Tortoise at the same time as the x32 bit Tortoise and both Windows Explorer and XYplorer have the correct icons and functionality working.

Maybe a warning message would be useful but it's not really an error.
There are legitimate reasons to install the 32-bit version on a 64-bit OS (usually in addition to the 64-bit version), since it enables the context menus within 32-bit apps.

(Easy example to try, the File->Open dialog in 32-bit Notepad:
C:\Windows\SysWOW64\notepad.exe )

(I suppose the 64-bit installer could offer both 32- and 64-bit versions, though.)
