ExeProperties Overview

EXE files contain the program code for Windows applications and programs. These may load DLL (Dynamic Link Library) files that contain additional program code. When an EXE or DLL is built, it will either contain 32-bit code or 64-bit code. 32-bit code can run on any processor, but 64-bit code requires a 64-bit processor and a 64-bit version of Windows.

However, Windows does not provide any built-in way to determine if an EXE or DLL is 32-bit or 64-bit. This is where ExeProperties comes to the rescue! It is really easy to use, once installed it extends the built-in Windows File Explorer by adding an additional tab to the properties panel that shows extended properties for EXE and DLL files.

To view these extended properties, right click on an EXE or DLL file in Windows File Explorer, and select Properties from the context menu. The additional tab added by ExeProperties is called Exe/Dll Info. Select this tab to view the extended properties.

The extended properties shown are as follows.

Type Shows whether the EXE/DLL is 32 or 64 bits.
Min. Windows Version Shows the minimum version of Windows required to run the EXE.
Built With Shows the version of Microsoft Visual Studio used to build the EXE or DLL. Note: if it was not built with Visual Studio, then only the version number of the tool is shown.

Note: ExeProperties cannot be run as a standalone application. It can only be accessed via Windows File Explorer.
