I´ve some computers all of them using windows 10 pro x64, one of them is using the app of x64 but other two are using x86 app, and of course I'm a very strange person, but if available I like that projects would use the proper app for the correct o.s.

As far as I know the server should automatically detect which app(version) is faster for every host. However for some reason this does not work and it looks like the server thinks that x86 is faster, even though runtimes are significantly shorter on x86_64.
I'll leave it as it is now for a while to investigate, but eventually there's a global server-side option to force primary platform.

Hi TJM,

thanks for your swift answer.

I already show in the past the option in some projects to run only x64 but long time I didn't see it.

so how could I do? "but eventually there's a global server-side option to force primary platform.

I told you that I'm somewhere strange but I don´t like to run x86 app when possible and available x64.
