Indeed, when running pure 64-bit applications (like VLC’s 64-bit
Windows build), using wine64 instead of wine works fine.  I did not
even know this command existed.

It seems the issue is only with WoW64, i.e. supporting both 32-bit and
64-bit programs.  The synopsis of wine64 claims it’s a WoW64 version.

For example, the installer of VLC’s 32-bit or 64-bit Windows version
fails to run.  The installer is claimed by binutils’ objdump program
to be a 32-bit i386 executable instead of i386:x86-64.
