Now that there are 16bit, 32bit and even 64bit binaries around for different processor and operating system platform types we need an easy method for determining which machine architecture a binary has been compiled for.
I found a neat little tool called MiTeC EXE Explorer which does exactly that and more. This tool was developed by a guy named Michal Mutl. Michal has developed all sorts of system admin tools... please visit his website at http://www.mitec.cz/.
MiTeC EXE Explorer is such a great little tool as it does not require installing, its a portable executable which can be executed on any server or workstation within your organisation. It is also completely free.
This is a third party non Microsoft tool however you can feel save executing it on your enterprise environment knowing it will not perform unknown miscellaneous activities as the tool received the Softpedia 100% clean award.
