Running the 64-but version of the TeamCity Agent

When I install the agent onto a 64-bit Windows Server 2008 R2 machine, it uses the TeamCityAgentService-windows-x86-32.exe program for the Build Agent service.

Is there a way I can force it to use TeamCityAgentService-windows-x86-64.exe instead?

This service is very thin launcher to start java process. Switching it to x64 version will not improve its performance anyhow.
Used Java can be switched to x64 version by property in launcher\conf\wrapper.conf file. But again, the actual build scripts are executed by external processes that can be 32-bit or 64-bit by themselves. So bittness of the build agent does not affect a common performance.

So, what is a goal behind this question?
