Does wine for 64 bit runs win 32 bit aplications as well as wine for 32 bit systemes?

I have been using wine before, and runned gamers like hoi2, but with wine in 8.04 for 64 bit it did not work.

There is no 64 bit wine. Only 32 bit win in a 64 bit environment. So wine will only run 32 bit windows applications.

I have had problems with wine in a 64bit environment, so i think it might have some problems. Best stick to a 32 bit installation of Ubuntu if you need that program bad enough. Or there might be a way to get it working.
