How to determine if system is 32 or 64 bit?

I am about to upgrade from XP to Winhave looked at the help file and can't see if or how it's possible to determine if it's 32 or 64 bit. Would @Winapi[???] be the right call?
 
Would %_X64 help you?
 
Would %_X64 help you?

%_X64 doesn't appear in TCMD 8.x and I need to find out in a way that is backwords copatible to version 8.x. I did find:

_WOW64 returns 1 if the command processor is running in the WOW64 environment (64-bit Windows).

and I need to see if Windows is 32 or 6, not caring if it's the 32 or 64 bit version of TCMD that is running.
 
Some time ago I needed some infos about the running windows without invoking tcmd/tcc :nailbiting: .
I made up a little autoit script which I compiled as console-application (checking "console?" in aut2exe).
I stuffed it with some autoit macros, e.g. "OSArch".
This is how it works:
Code:
(system)  C:\TEMP >autoitinfo $osa
X64
 
(system)  C:\TEMP >autoitinfo Hello $b %username , $+ "you are currently working with a " $osa "-Windows".
Hello Frank,
you are currently working with a X64-Windows.
This is the source code:

ConsoleWrite( $string & @CRLF )
Use it on your own risk.
 
Code:
  IFF "%PROCESSOR_ARCHITECTURE%" EQ "x86" then
    Echo System has a 32-bit processor
  elseiff "%PROCESSOR_ARCHITECTURE%" EQ "x64" then
    echo System has a 64-bit processor
  else
    echoerr System not known..... Get it serviced
