Is there a technical reason why 32bit Cygwin cannot be installed on
64bit Windows? We like to create a CI build pipeline, and want to
create binaries for 32bit and 64bit Cygwin on the same machine, but
setup.exe for 32bir Cygwin refuses to install

Practical reason is 32 bit usage < 1% and Cygwin is all volunteer, with professionally and/or personally busy developers lacking time to do more.
You are on your own with 32 bit dropped, so ask questions on forums like SO.

Take care. Thanks, Brian Inglis              Calgary, Alberta, Canada
