Often you hear that this software is for 64-bit Windows and that one is for 32-bit Windows. But how do you know if your computer is running 64-bit Windows or 32-bit Windows? You can go through system information settings and find it out, or you can simply use the freeware 64bit Checker to find out if your system is 64-bit or 32-bit.
The 64bit Checker program is designed to easily find out if your operating system (and obviously the hardware) supports 64-bit or not. You can download it from the Igorware website. The download is a portable application which works for all versions of Windows starting from Windows 95 to Windows 8. Because its a portable application, you can just download and run the downloaded file without having to install anything. It will show you in big letters if your operating system if 64-bit or 32-bit.
In addition, it will also show you the operating system name, version, service pack, type, installation date etc. It also displays if your hardware (motherboard and CPU) supports 64-bit architecture, in other words, whether you can install 64-bit Windows on this system. In the Report section, it also gives an option to save the report in plain text or HTML format. You can also copy the report to the clipboard.
64bit Checker is a simple utility that can help you determine the hardware and CPU architecture of your system as well as tell you if your installed Windows is 32-bit or 64-bit. Knowing if you are using 64-bit Windows is very helpful when installing new programs and software on your system.
