  1. I couldn’t help but notice…The top example doesn’t show processor architecture. I assume if it does not specify 64 bit, then it is 32 bit. I am trying to identify architecture on a Windows Server 2003 machine.

  2. Here is a tip:
    Open a command prompt and type “echo %processor_architecture%” (without the quotes) and you’ll get x86 or x64 depending on the version of Windows installed.
