You can only install a 32bit Cygwin on a 64bit Windows to execute a
32bit Cygwin application.  You can execute 32bit Windows binaries on
Windows 64bit as well.  With Cygwin it is more difficult to segregate
the appropriate libraries and the recommendation is to use two different
environments if you need to still execute the 32bit software.  But the
better solution is to build it again.
