32-bit or 64-bit XP, how to tell which one I have?


How do I find out if my Windows XP is 32-bit or 64-bit?

Your signature indicates XP Home which is 32-bit. You need a CPU such as the Athlon64 to run XP Pro 64, and it should have the 64 in its title screen.

Thanks, Skeet -
It shows:
System: Microsoft Windows XP, Home Edition, Version 2002, Service Pack 2;
Computer: Intel(R), Pentium(R) 4 CPU 2.80GHz,2.79GHz, 1.00GB of RAM, Physical Address Extension.

I'd been looking for something that actually stated "32-bit" or "64-bit", and couldn't find that. I knew I had XP Home Edition , but I didn't know that that automatically meant it's 32-bit - now I know!
