What issues are you seeing? I'm not aware of any outstanding 64-bit
issues..a lot of installers don't work on 64-bit wine which means
there's no 64-bit .Net support in winetricks, but that's a Wine bug.
Not all verbs override 64bit dlls, either because they don't exist or
support hasn't been added. No one has reported any bugs for that
though, so I'm not in a rush to do so.

If you have reproducible issues or feature requests, please report
them to https://github.com/Winetricks/winetricks/issues
