Could both 32-bit and 64-bit Python implementations be made available?

At the moment, only 32 bit Python (versions 2.7.8, 3.3.5 and 3.4.1) are installed on build workers. Could this be extended to include the 64-bit versions? The Windows x86_64 MSI installers from

The 32-bit and 64-bit Pythons install by default into the same folder - C:\PythonXY. I suggest that the 64-bit installs go to C:\PythonXY_64. Personally, I'd prefer the 64-bit installs be in the default folder, but that could break existing users' scripts.

Also, could be updated to mention what Python versions are installed? It would stop people having to search or "roll their own" solutions (I know of at least one project that is downloading and installing Python on each build, which is a waste of resources).

    I think having x64 counterparts in _64 folders is a good idea. Will install them early this week and let you know when ready.

    It's been installed. Updated list of Pythons with their installation folders could be found here:
