Or you could look at the code instead of guessing: wix3\src\burn\engine\variable.cpp

There is no such option. As I said: "A FileSearch new feature could add a Win64=yes option" meaning that this would be a new feature.
This of course assumes that the underlying issue is that the search from a 32-bit app always searches the 32-bit file system when the native 64-bit folder is being searched, which seems to be the case.
