How to determine which version of Sharepoint is installed (X86 or x64)

Posted on 2011-10-11

I recently inherited a SharePoint server (WSS 3.0) and am trying to upgrade the base OS to Server 2008 r2 (OS is currently Windows Server 2003 x64). I was wondering if there was a simple way for me to determine if the previous administrator has installed x86 or x64 bit SharePoint.

    Thanks for that. Which folder should I be looking for in the "C:\program files (x86)" or "C:\program files" directory? I checked that prior to posting this question, however, I didn't see anything related to WSS in either one.

    Check in:

    Check the Processor Architecture column.  The SharePoint Search DLL will have either a x86 or and AMD64 next to it.

    Excellent! Thanks very much. Ended up having 64bit.
