In the version resource, it is already 64 bits...

For MSI, I'm not sure... I wouldn't change the on disk
format unless I had to. I don't think there was anything
in the MSI on disk format that was incompatible with
64-bit windows....

(And the ability to have a package w/ both 64-bit and 32-bit
components is a win in some circumstances.)
