If you've installed the released x86 binary, then that's a 32-bit
build, which means that it works the same as it did anywhere else.
You need to use a 64-bit build to get the bigger word sizes.  We
started to make those builds shortly after the last release, so you
can try to install Windows 64-bit from the nightly builds page:
