Is my cpu 64-bit compatible? Tech savvy users will likely be able to answer that question without pause. But not everyone is a tech savvy users and it often pays to have simple tools that reveal the information needed instead of having to explain, guide or find the information.

64bit Checker is one of the easiest tools available for that, providing that the computer is already running a version of the Windows operating system.

Before we take a closer look we should quickly point out why it may be important to know if the cpu of the computer is 64-bit compatible.

The main reason for finding out is to know if a 64-bit operating system can be installed on the PC. If the cpu supports 64-bit then it is possible, if not then only a 32-bit operating system can be installed.

64bit Checker is a portable application, which means that it can be executed without installation. The software lists the relevant information directly in its main window after execution.

The program lists the operating system name, version and edition. PC users who wonder whether they have a 32-bit or 64-bit copy of Windows installed find the information right in the program window.

The processor listing however details if the processor is compatible with 64-bit systems, or not. The bit checker offers several reporting options, which are probably overkill for such a small application. Information can be exported to the clipboard or saved as text or HTML reports.

64bit Checker is a free portable software for Windows that detects if a 32-bit or 64-bit version of Windows is installed, and whether the cpu supports 64-bit operating system.s The program is available for download at the developer site over at Igor Ware.
