Hello donie,

@OSArch is in your AutoIt Helpfile found in helpfile/AutoIt/Macro Reference/System Info Macros.

This example works for me.

Local $cpu_arch_type = @CPUArch
Local $os_arch_type = @OSArch
Local $msgTitle = 'CPU = ' & $cpu_arch_type & ', OS = ' & $os_arch_type 
Select
  Case $cpu_arch_type = 'X86'
    MsgBox( '', $msgTitle, 'Your CPU is 32 bit architecture.' )
  Case $cpu_arch_type = 'X64' And $os_arch_type = 'X86'
    MsgBox( '', $msgTitle, 'Your CPU is 64 bit architecture,' & @CRLF & 'However your OS is only 32 bit architecture' )
  Case $cpu_arch_type = 'X64' And $os_arch_type = 'X64'
    MsgBox( '', $msgTitle, 'Both your CPU and OS is 64 bit architecture.' )
  Case $cpu_arch_type = 'X64' And $os_arch_type = 'IA64'
    MsgBox( '', $msgTitle, 'Both your CPU and OS is 64 bit architecture,' & @CRLF & 'and your OS also supports 32 bit emmulation.' )
EndSelect

Happy Coding!

Edit: Added checks for both architecture types for both CPU and OS. corrected variable name.

i will say thanks to you all, but non of the codes works for me :S

and Realm the path you say Helpfile/Autoit/Marco Reference/System Info Macros only shows me:

@OSLang

@OSType

@OSVersion

@OSBuild

@OSServicePack

and not the @OSArch, and i can not see the @CPUArch.

dondie,

@CPUArch was introduced in the v3.3.0.0 release in Dec 2008 - what version are you running? :huh:

MsgBox(0, "Version", @AutoItVersion)

@CPUArch should be the first one on the list.

@OSArch should be the fourth example on the list.

At least they are in my help file.

The example in my previous post is moderately misleading.... I labled the variable as cpu arch as requested from your OP, but was thinking about your request to install the proper versions of software in which you would need the OS to be of the same arch type as well, and the variable $cpu_arch_type... is actually polling the OS architecture type in my example. I apologize for not correcting that when I changed the direction of check, and not explaining why at the same time in my previous post. I will correct that in a moment and add a check for both versions.

dondie,

I suggest you uninstall what you have and the download and reinstal from our webpage - that way you are sure of getting the latest version. ;)

Edit: I see you have done. :thumbsup:

Simply check the folders on system drive.

64bit systems have Program Files and Program Files(x86), 32bit systems have only Program Files

That's not a reliable check in my opinion.

i know, but im making a auto installing of programmes, that is diffrent from 32 bit and 64 bit, so yes i need autoit to check if the computer is 64 or 32 bit, or else i need to make 2 programms = waste of time

Yes, it is possible to have a 64bit version of Windows without a Program Files (x86) folder. It would be more reliable to check for the existence of the Syswow64 folder.
