I've thought a bit about making a single installer that can offer the option of 32-bit/64-bit at install time, but I don't actually think it's that big a problem to deserve that much effort as a solution.
Perhaps we should add non-button text below the button saying "Get the 64-bit version"?
Or perhaps the 32-bit installer could detect a 64-bit system and add an info box at the beginning?
That's not a bad idea. Needs a bpo issue, but shouldn't be too hard to do. And it should be safe to backport for 3.7.1, as there's no real behaviour change.
And if the 64-bit installer could detect 32-bit systems and explain to users that they got the wrong version and direct them to the correct one, that would help anyone who does get confused by the 64-bit installer becoming more prominent.
