Shell extension that comes with complete package is 32bit

Hello!
The shell extension that cames with complete package is 32bit only. On 64bit OS the installation will offer to install that extension, it will succeed without any errors, but will not be used by the OS. Users will have to manually download and install 64bit version.

Right. A 64bit component would not work for 32bit OS and program.

What I meant was the installer could easily carry both 32 and 64bit versions and install the needed one based on type of the OS, instead of installing something that will not work at all. Right?

Yes, currently you have to install the 64-bit version of the Shell Extension after you install XnView itself.
