The bug is still there in version 7.1.
This is working and the installtion will be i the folder C:\Pub
npp.7.1.Installer.exe /S /D=C:\Pub
The x64 version of 7.1 is not working.
The installtionfolder will be C:\Program Files\Notepad++
npp.7.1.Installer.x64.exe /S /D=C:\Pub
When will you fix this bug???

Perhaps add some info about why to use 64-bit version.
Why should users choose the 64-bit version instead of the 32-bit version and vice versa.

@donho FYI, I just installed Notepad++ 7.3.2 64-bit version where there had been Notepad++ 7.3.2 32-bit version and it warned me about removing the 32-bit version while noting it would preserve settings.
I have done this several times since my original post - thanks for the changes to accommodate this.
However in this case I then ended up using the View Source command in Internet Explorer and got this error:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Notepad++\nppIExplorerShell.exe
Windows cannot find ‘C:\Program Files (x86)\Notepad++\nppIExplorerShell.exe’. Make sure you typed the name correctly, and then try again.
Turns out the 32-bit installer had set this value at some point in the past in the registry and it was not modified or removed when I ran the 64-bit installer:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\View Source Editor\Editor Name
(Default) = C:\Program Files (x86)\Notepad++\nppIExplorerShell.exe
Since the 32-bit program is removed, there is no C:\Program Files (x86)\Notepad++\nppIExplorerShell.exe
Further there is no 64-bit version of nppIExplorerShell.exe in C:\Program Files\Notepad++
You can, of course, replace the default value with “C:\Program Files\Notepad++\notepad++.exe” and IE will launch npp as the viewer although it will likely throw a security warning.

I literally only just found out Notepad++ has a 64-bit build. Sadly I switched to Sublime Text back in 2015 when I really needed a 64-bit editor to handle the monster text files generated by FEA software (Abaqus and HyperMesh, specifically) that Notepad++ choked on. Sublime has Linux builds also and a native, default dark theme, sooo gonna stick with that. Bittersweet though, because Notepad++ was one of my favorite apps right up to the point it couldn’t do what I needed it to :(

Depending upon the magnitude of the large filesizes you are talking about, your move may have been a good one (Notepad++, even 64-bit, is limited in the size of file it can open).

Updater was drawing a blank on my existing 64 bit install. I noticed it was quite old so I uninstalled so that I could install the latest version.
On the download page, when I click on the 64bit installer, I get an error message:
Error 503 Backend fetch failed
