XP Mode 32-bit or 64-bit on Win 7 Pro x64 Machine?

Hi, I'm running XP Mode on a Win 7 Pro x64 machine. Is the version of XP that's part of XP Mode 32-bit or 64-bit? I'm trying to determine what version of software is appropriate to be installed on the XP OS in XP Mode.

Is there a way to determine this information on the machine? I don't see it in System Information.

Thanks for the assistance.

Regards

It would be 32 bit XP. 64 bit XP was never very popular and had compatibility issues with older software, the very problem XP mode was designed to solve. In any event XP mode runs under VirtualPC which does not support 64 bit clients, even when run on a 64 bit host.
