I'm using a PowerShell console and I need to know the different commands that can be executed to find out if the 32-bit or 64-bit version of Windows Server 2008 is installed. I appreciate the help.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Using WMI:

Get-WmiObject Win32_OperatingSystem | Select-Object OSArchitecture


By looking at the size of the InPtr structure:

if ([System.IntPtr]::Size -eq 4) { "32-bit" } else { "64-bit" }


And, in .Net 4 or earlier, this would tell you if it is running on a 64 bit OS:

[environment]::Is64BitOperatingSystem
