How to find out if an *.exe is 32bit or 64bit without starting it?
Is there a way to find out if a given *.exe file is 32bit or 64bit executable.
The program should ...
- NOT be started (and investigated in TaskManager)
- NOT be installed and checked if it is installed in C:\Program files (x86) or not
- NOT be checked at the authors site
I am searching a tool which takes the *.exe as parameter and investigates the binary code to find out the 32bit or 64bit property

Please accept my apology in advance. I've never been accused of being the sharpest knife in the drawer so I'm a bit confused. You don't want the *.exe file installed, started, or checked at the author's web site.
Hypothetically, how was the file obtained? On a CD or DVD, perhaps? A flash drive? Was it a digital download file?
Wouldn't any "tool" have to be able to open the file to examine it? And wouldn't opening the file be kinda, sorta like starting it?
