Windows 7: Remote detection 64 bit 32 bit

Remote detection 64 bit 32 bit

How do I find if a remote computer is 64 bit or 32 bit.

Preferrably without too many requirements, maybe a remote cmd command or something.

Try this command on CMD window.

C:\>wmic os get osarchitecture

This command is for Power Shell users who use remote commands

Where do you enter the computer name? When I run the command it gives me my own architecture. I want to do this for a remote computer :)

Okay I got it to work remotely, but only works on some computers. On some computers I get the following types of error messages:

1. RPC server not available.
2. Invalid request.

What do these errors correspond to and how can I fix them?

I got invalid request on a computer running 32 bit win xp, but it worked on a computer running 32 bit windows 7. I got the RPC error on computers running both Win XP and Win 7.

Any help much appreciated. I just want to find out the os architecture in a reliable way with any windows os if possible.

Using Remote Desktop instead of Remote Assistance for remote helpdesk?
Hi I know there are other products out there, like vnc, ultravnc, teamviewer etc etc, but really nothing beats the sheer speed of remote desktop, it's like sitting in front of the actual computer. I also know about Remote Assistance built into Windows 7. I would like to use remote desktop...
