Greetings,

does anyone know how it is possible to find out whether the current version of acad is 32 or 64 bit?

I'm assuming you have a 64-bit computer.

 

Look at which folder the program is loaded in. No special software or program required.

 

64-bit software will be installed in the Program Files folder.

 

32-bit software will be installed in the Program Files (x86) folder.

 

Simple.

Except for the isolated cases where someone installs AutoCAD in C:\Acad or some other non-default path.

Agreed. Some users like to be different. Good point.

(getenv "PROCESSOR_ARCHITECTURE")

 

That tells you what processor is installed, the OP wants to know what version software is running.

Oops, sorry. Missed that.

(getenv "PROCESSOR_ARCHITECTURE")

I hate to get off topic, but I copy/pasted my code just to be curious and it returned a value of "AMD64". That's really weird since I have a Core i5 with a nVidia QFX card. Why AMD64? Hmmmm

Mine just returns "x86". Not sure why you're getting AMD, but it's really the number that's important.

Mine also returns AMD64. My computer it in-fact a 64 bit Intel machine not AMD.

Sounds like AMD is suppling Intel with its 64 bit Processors.

 

Put whatever faith in this that you want....

 

Many operating systems and products, especially those that introduced x86-64 support prior to Intel's entry into the market, use the term "AMD64" or "amd64" to refer to both AMD64 and Intel 64.
