Sigcheck utility can query unicode

VBScript "filever.vbs"

Set objFSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
Wscript.Echo objFSO.GetFileVersion(wscript.arguments(0))

Can both of them be explained more as i don't understand these steps.

Also, is there something in the Dxdiag itself which will show if its 64 bit or 32 bit instead of asking for these extra info.

Are you just trying to tell if Windows is 64-bit?

by seanferd In reply to I dont understand these

Why use DxDiag for this anyway? Just check the system properties.

Command for sigcheck:
sigcheck -a C:\windows\explorer.exe

Edit: Generally, any version checking shows if it is 64-bit. If 32-bit, it doesn't say so directly.
