Custom Property for 32 or 64-bit Windows OS

(imported topic written by SystemAdmin)

Hey BigFix community

Particularly for software distribution, it can be really handy to know if it’s a 64-bit or 32-bit windows OS. Does anyone have the text of a custom property for this? This should be really easy to do, but i am a complete newbie / SCCM admin doing a product eval.

Perhaps its a default property that I am missing!

Thanks all

“x64 of operating system” will return a true or false.

Not sure if one already exists but If you wanted to add a property you could try something like

if x64 of operating system then “64” else “32”

Great, that worked very well. I’ll probably modify that to make sure it’s checking only if the OS is windows at some point. I should study up on relevance, but my primary concern during this eval is making sure stuff works as advertised.
