32 or 64-bit Application
There are a number of ways you can determine if an executable file is a
32-bit or 64-bit application. One simple way to do so, if no changes
have already been made for compatibility mode, is to right-click on
the executable .exe file and choose Properties then click on the
Compatibility tab. If you see "Windows XP" listed under "Compatiblity
mode", then the program is a 32-bit one.
If, instead, the default value you see listed is "Windows Vista" and, if
you check the "Run this program in compatibility mode for" and "Windows XP
is not an option, then the program is a 64-bit one.
