Can a stack know which standalone engine it's running on?

But doesn’t the processor just report on the host operating system? I wan’t to know which LiveCode engine is running.
Here’s the scenario:
I have a LiveCode splash screen-type application for which I’ve compiled both Windows-32 and Windows-64-bit versions. The standalone opens a stack that contains the actual business logic. In my About dialog, I’d like to be able to report which LiveCode engine the stack is running under. Do we have a way to get that information?
