How to install .NET 3.5 in a 64bit container?

Help needed...

After successfully setting up a new virtual drive/container in POM, using Wine 4.7 64bit, I can not install the (needed by an app) .NET framework 3.5. When I go into configuration - install components and select the dotnet35sp1 package, it stops with the message "Error in source
This package does not work on a 64-bit installation"

Ok... but there are people running this (outdated, I admit) framework successfully on 64bit versions of win7, win8, and win10, so there should be a way to install it in a wine64 container, too!

Thank you in advance for helpful hints!

"Error in source: This package does not work on a 64-bit installation"   is in the following feature :

As I understantd the script (if [ "$POL_ARCH" == "amd64" ]; then), you should recreate a new POL volume and set 32 bits. It seems it failed the first time.

Thank you for that info. But I need to have it in a 64bit POM volume. And since there are lots of 64bit Win PCs in the wild which can run .NET 3.5, there should be a way to get it running, perhaps using alternative install methods, in a 64bit volume...

Wrote in 2017 but I think it's still accurate :

That looks like an interesting path to go. Will explore it this weekend. Thank you very much!
