Kristine Hahn resolved DRILL-4239.
----------------------------------
    Resolution: Fixed

Revised [install doc|https://drill.apache.org/docs/installing-drill-on-windows/] to say:
{quote}
Currently, Drill supports 64-bit Windows only. 
{quote}

Revised ODBC doc accordingly. The 64-bit requirement for the machine is stated. A note says
the 32- or 64-bit driver is supported on a 64-bit machine.

> Winutils.exe has been compiled to run on the 64 bit version of windows.  For this reason,
some part of the documentation that suggest that Drill can run on 32bit Windows must be fixed.
 Furthermore, although few user run 64 bit windows these days, it would be helpful to make
this requirement more explicit.  In particular, rapid installation of Windows on VirtualBox
will often result in 32 bit version being installed by default, since it's the preselected
default during installation process.
