Hi Phil,

Try this is the message box.

put shell("systeminfo")

Part of the retuned info will include

System Type: X86-based PC


x86-based PC: It’s a 32-bit computer.
x64-based PC: It’s a 64-bit computer.

On Win7

If you have a 64 bit version of Win7 you will have these two folders

System32  	    C:\Windows\System32  	Windows System folder (system
directory) for 64-bit files
SysWOW64     C:\Windows\SysWOW64 	Windows System folder (system directory)
for 32-bit files

Hope this helps
