there *is* a 64-bit Windows build. You just have to download and install
the latest "alpha" version.
"Alpha" is a relative term here. Most of VMD has been stable and reliable
for most people.
But there have been issues with some of the GUI libraries that VMD is using
on 64-bit for macOS and Windows, specifically
and also those are not always 100% compatible with high-DPI screen (what is
called "Retina" on macOS) because GUI element size settings were pixel

If you are affected too much by Windows specific issues, you can consider
installing the Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL2) and then download and
install the Linux version of VMD (but you likely still want to download the
alpha version, since version 1.9.3 dates from 2016 and that is in computer
terms the stone age).
