How do I know if my version of Microsoft Office is 64-bit?


I recently purchased a new laptop and it's got a sticker saying that it's Windows 7 64-bit. How do I know if Microsoft Office will run on it? I've got the Office 2010 install cd.

Microsoft Office 2010's installer will put the 64-bit version on your computer if it detects the 64-bit version of Windows, but it will install the 32-bit version of Office if that's the version of Windows you're running.
