Hosted download of putty is 32-bit. Tell us beforehand!

Thanks for making it easy for users to obtain putty. However, after 4 years of non-updates, I was surprised to see that he had released 0.61.

Unfortunately (for me) the version you're hosting is the 32-bit version. The application will not run in a 64-bit environment.

Please update https://winscp.net/eng/download.php#putty to reflect that the version you are hosting is the 32-bit version. Maybe something like (bolded to highlight the difference, not actually for the web page update):

Executable (32-bit, 0.5 MiB)
Installation package (32-bit, 1.8 MiB)

Thanks!

P.S. And THANK YOU for your ongoing work on such a useful universal file transfer program. I'll go donate right now!

Thanks for your support and for your suggestion!

We have updated the title to "PuTTY 0.61 for Windows on Intel x86", using same wording as the original download page by Simon Tatham.

Good idea to use his phrase, that way you won't be putting words in his mouth.
