Chocolatey x86 install

Hello folks, I’m trying to get choco to install x86 version of package… according to choco docs you need to supply --x86 or --forcex86, so I’ve tried to supply them, at best choco installs both x64 and x86 at worst does nothing. what am I missing?


I suggest you to open up a issue on their github respository:

well, turns out things were a little bit odd. Tomcat wouldn’t work because java was x64 and java wouldn’t work because maintainer choose to ignore -x86 switch. They use -params “/exclude:x64” or something like that.
