Is there no information about your app on the vendor home page?

IIRC, you can tell from the PE header in the EXE. MSDN is the place to go for this type of information.

16 bit applications usually 'look' 16bit - they have flat dialogue boxes and would look at home on Windows 3.x.

32/64bit applications generally look the same, but the installer (MSI especially) will have launch conditons to prevent a 64bit application installing on a 32bit system.

Is there a particular scenario you are asking this question for, or just curiosity?

If you are installing a 32 bit application on a 64 bit Windows 7OS, application files will be copied to C:\program files (x86)folder.

If the application files are getting copied to C:\Program Files or any other location, then it is a 64-bit application.
