NetExtender.Linux-10.2.835 falsely reports itself as 32-bit binary depending on current directory

Thanks for looking at this issue. The bash output below and title should be relatively self explanatory. Install script falsely reports itself as 32-bit binary if run from outside it’s containing directory. Changing the current working directory to the install script’s containing directory resolves the error, but the error should not report a false issue that implies the tarballs are mislabeled.

[ec2-user@ip ~]$ curl -sS "" -o "./NetExtender.Linux-10.2.835.x86_64.tgz"

[ec2-user@ip ~]$ tar -xf NetExtender.Linux-10.2.835.x86_64.tgz [ec2-user@ip ~]$ ls

netExtenderClient  NetExtender.Linux-10.2.835.x86_64.tgz  

[ec2-user@ip ~]$ sudo ./netExtenderClient/install
