When I was working on issue8321, I had problem to test it (mainly recompile existing packages with debugging symbol) on our Windows 7 32 bits because MSYS2 uses 64 bits building tools even for 32 bits packages.
So I setup a Windows 10 64 bits (without license) and succeeded very easily to recompile and get gdb working. More over I found that the Windows 10 64 bits was running faster than the Windows 7 32 bits on the QEMU virtual machine. I guess it is probably because the hosts is also a 64 bits system.
Also Microsoft will end the support of Windows 7 on January 14, 2020.
I’m proposing that for the next release we build client for 32 and 64 bits using Windows 10 64 bits. The NSIS script could detect the architecture and append the proper suffix.
For that we will need that the Foundation buy a Windows 10 license (I’m going to make the request).
What do you think?
