Please prominently display the architecture version (x86 or x64) in the installer window and header. The version number is displayed, which is good, but the architecture needs to be visible as well.

Hi Devin, why do you find this info useful? The Scrivener installer will warn you, if you try to install a 32 bit Scrivener on a 64 bit operating system. This info should not be very important to the general user. If I remember correctly the Microsoft Office installer for example also does not show the architecture during installation, correct me if I am wrong. If you have any good use case where showing the architecture inside the installer is very useful please let me know.
