VersionNT64 property

The installer sets the VersionNT64 property to the version number for the operating system only if the system is running on a 64-bit computer. The property is undefined if the operating system is not 64-bit.

The value is an integer: MajorVersion * 100 + MinorVersion.

For compatibility reasons, the property is also undefined if the Template Summary property indicates the package is for 32-bit Intel (x86) systems and the operating system cannot run 64-bit Intel (x64) code, such as Windows 10 on ARM (ARM64).


As of Windows 10 Build 21277, ARM64 builds in the Dev channel of the Windows Insider Preview program have support for x64 applications. On these ARM64 builds, the VersionNT64 property is defined for x86 packages.


Conditional expressions test for 64-bit Windows simply by using the property name, or by verifying the version using a comparison operator.
