Lazy buggers! ;-)

I'll do the same, thanks.

Nope, that's the firs place I looked. I've got 64-bit Windows 7
installed. The "Properties -> Details" dialog list the file type,
version, copyright etc... but nowhere does it say 32-bit or 64-bit.

I can see the "*32" in the Windows Task Manager which indicates 32-bit
or 64-bit applications. But that is only useful for long running
apps.For very fast running applications (eg: many console utilities) it
appears and disappears to quickly for me to see.
