windows7 64-bit

Why doesn't intellij install as a 64-bit process on windows 7 64-bit?
It goes to program files (x86) instead

my JAVA_HOME is 64-bit.

Is there anything I can do about it?
Should I care?

The installer for IntelliJ IDEA is 32-bit, so it's installed in the 32-bit program files directory. Also, by default IntelliJ IDEA runs under its own bundled JDK, which is 32-bit. And no, you shouldn't care.
