@ferventcoder It wouldn't, in theory, be hard to add an x64 version of Chocolatey GUI if that's desirable
Would just mean our CI/Build would run longer and we'd need to do some tweaking to our MSI/packaging

Wasn’t it anycpu at one point?

@ferventcoder I think I can shed some light on this...
Yes, the Chocolatey GUI Project used to be Any CPU. However, the Wix Project is x86 only
when we introduced Cake.Recipe for doing the build of the solution, it doesn't handle mixed architecture solutions very well
i.e. it simply doesn't at the minute
:-)
in order to save a bunch of yak shaving, and just get a build working, I switched the Chocolatey GUI project to be x86 to match the Wix project
we can revert this, but it will take a little bit of time to get a working build again

@gep13 There is a reason actually. With our dependency on CefSharp, we have to have platform specific builds.

can you run it past me again what we are using the CefSharp component for?
