Yes there is.
Have a look at the OSArchitecture()UDF.

Also see the @OnWoW64 macro.

From the manual..."@ONWOW64 If this macro returns 1, KiXtart is running in the WOW64 environment on a Windows x64 system."

FYI - a lot of the O/S and Platform data needed for this type of inventory application can be returned with a single function call by using my WMISysInfo() UDF, including O/S and Platform architectures. This can greatly simplify such apps, and will improve performance (compared to individual WMIQuery() calls) by instantiating only a single WMI object. It returns the following array:
 Code:
;;RETURNS        40 element array

The UDF can be downloaded from our web site's Kix UDF Library page. Note that the included _osid() function that generates standard "WINxxx" format names needs to be updated for Win-7/8 and Server 2012. This is returned in element 1, and was used by one of our internal apps so may not be an issue for others.. The UDF was updated today and will be available on our web site after 8pm EST tonight.

Also, if there are any suggestions for the "Future Use" fields, I'll see what I can do to update the UDF to include them.

The only consistent method I could find online to determine the bitness of Office, is to use WMI. It is pretty slow, but seems to work.

 Code:
$objWMIService = GetObject("winmgmts:{impersonationLevel=impersonate}!\\.\root\cimv2")
$colSoft = $objWMIService.ExecQuery("SELECT * FROM Win32_Product WHERE Name Like 'Microsoft Office%'")

If $colSoft.Count = 0
   $bits = "na"		; Office not installed
Else
   For Each $objItem In $colSoft
      $item = $objitem.caption
      If InStr($item, "-bit") AND Len($bits) = 0
         $bits = Right(Split($item, "-bit")[0], 2)
      Endif
   Next
EndIf

? "Bits: "+$bits

get $

thanks, but it seems it's not given the right bits.
i have office Professional Plus 2010 32bit installed.
my version is: 14.0.7106.5003 (32-bit).
and when i run the script it says "Bits: 64"..

is there another way to get this information?? (the bits..)

thanks in advanced...

Would you mind creating a new post, where we can trouble shoot this more? Don't want to further hijack this thread.

If you can install an additional dll on your computers, the following UDF will get the bit version of an exe. See notes in the thread.

PSGetBinaryType -
http://www.kixtart.org/forums/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=204276#Post204276

Thinking out loud...
Do a registry check for the path of your office installation
Since Word is included in all versions of office, use the path with WINWORD.EXE
Use the function above to check for 32 or 64 bit.

Yeah I came across both of those solutions when I googled it as well Allen...But with both methods it seemed there were people that it did not work for. Of course those people may have been mistaken.

Also, another side note...The WMI reports 32 bit on my win 8.1 laptop. Whereas the outlook bitness registry value says x64. Wonder if WMI is just reporting incorrectly?

I believe all you need to do is check if the program installation path.

x86 32-bit version
C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Office\Office15


x64 64-bit version
C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office15

There would have to be, at a minimum, a OS bit check too for Doc's suggestion to work. If you have a Windows 32 bit OS, using the logic above, would produce Office 64bit.
