Hi, I am wondering if there is a way to determine the bitness (can safely assume it's either 32bit or 64bit) of the OS from a C++ 32bit program. Tried sizeof and limits but they are all defined to be 32bit for INT's, either cause it's a 32bit program, or visual C++'s LLP64 architecture is restricting it, whichever.
