How can I tell if a Windows library has been built for 32 or 64 bit?

Hi:

I've got some 3rd party libraries I'm trying to figure out.

Is there a way that I can tell if these libraries are 32 or 64 bit?

Thanks,
JohnB

Hi,
 Not sure if you want to check PROGRAMMATICALLY or MANUALLY.

If you want to do that MANUALLY, you can use DUMPBIN tool which is available with Visual C++ SDK http://support.microsoft.com/kb/177429

DUMPBIN with /HEADERS which give arch information of a binary as machine

dumpbin /headers <binaryfilepath>

Hope this helps.


Thanks,
