How to find if user is running IE9 32-bit or 64-bit

I need to find out if users are using the 32-bit or 64-bit version of IE9 in a web app.

We can already tell which browser and version they're running, but for some reason, I haven't found how to tell the difference between 32 and 64 bit versions.  

Thanks!

Are you wanting the web app itself to detect this or are you looking at it manually?  If manually, the Windows task manager distinguishes 32-bit apps by putting *32 next to the process name, so in this case, it would say iexplore.exe *32 if it was in 32-bit mode.

As far as the web app detecting it, this link may shed some light on it:
