When I install choco install notepadplusplus it installs 64 bit of Notepad++ and it causes issues (there no package manager for 64 bit of npp)

Is there any way to specifically choose 32 bit or 64 bit of an installation package? I expect there should be a switch for choco install, but I can't find it.


I was missing the forcex86 switch:

--x86, --forcex86 ForceX86 - Force x86 (32bit) installation on 64 bit systems. Defaults to false.

Here is the full list of Options and Switches. https://github.com/chocolatey/choco/wiki/CommandsInstall#options-and-switches
