How can I install a only a single version of 64-Bit And 32-Bit Apps?

Hello could you please tell Me if there is a setting in the PortableApps platform somewhere for Aplications that come with both the 32-Bit App version And the 64-Bit App version to only instal one of the two versions? And if there is one where do i find it? And how can i set it to if possible install only the 64-Bit version?
With a wish of a good day to you and a thank you beforehand for any reply.

Not Currently Supported

This isn't currently supported in an automated fashion. Many apps will support you removing the 32-bit version manually. Firefox and Thunderbird, for instance.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!

Give Users the Choice is the Way to Go

This is the same story for a fairly regularly request feature of portable apps. Deleting the 32bit app is done after it is installed i.e. after the hit to the HDD/SSD. It would be great if PortableApps would provide installers that give the user the option of only installing the 32bit or 64bit edition of an app. I switched from using Thunderbird PortableApps to Betterbird Portable for this very reason — with Betterbird I need only download and install a 64bit edition.

Use Portable Apps on both Flash Drive and HDD/SSD.
