Vovsoft Executable Bit Scanner : Identify Binary Files on PC

Vovsoft Executable Bit Scanner is a Windows application that can scan a folder and detect the executable binary files. It shows useful information about these binary files such as the architecture type.

Executable Bit Scanner is available both as a installable program and as a portable application. The portable application can be run without installing anything on your PC.

Supports many types of binary files

The user interface of Executable Bit Scanner is designed very intuitively. We can start using it by clicking on the Change button next to the “Directory” and selecting the folder containing the executable files or the ROM images. In the filter field, we can specify the file extensions to scan for. The filter section already contains some well known executable files such as EXE, DLL, SYS, OCX, CPL, SCR, DRV, EFI, ACM, and ACX.

After selecting the folder and optionally changing the filters, you can click on the Start button. It will quickly scan the files in that folder and display the results instantly. The reason why it is so fast is because it scans only a few bytes from the start of the files (file headers).

Fast scanning for executable headers

It looks for the usual executable file header bytes to find whether the file is an EXE or DLL, whether it is 16-bit, 32-bit, 64-bit, DOS executable from old versions of Windows, or a ROM file. Apart from the architecture and the file type, it also shows the file size, file extension, file date, etc.

Executable Bit Scanner has the ability to export the results to a file. We can click on the button labeled Export to File to save the results into a file on your PC. It can export the results into HTML, TXT, CSV, XLS, and XLSX file types. The exported results file can also be printed on a connected printer easily.


Vovsoft Executable Bit Scanner is a very useful tool if you want to find out more about the executable files on your computer. For example, if you are trying to run an old game and it is not working, you can use Executable Bit Scanner to check what kind of binary files the game folder has.
