I am running Win7 Ultimate x64 edition
with a geforce 9800gtx+

2 part question
#1 - I had noticed in one of the info tabs somewhere "don't remember wich" that i was running physx 32bit on a x64 windows
so i found a 64 bit version of the physx driver from
http://physxinfo.com/news/271/physx-system-software-9-09-0914/
and installed it i went to find the option to see if i was using the x64 version and i cant find it now. does anyone know where to find what version of physx you are running
mainly showing weather or not its x64 or 32 bit.

#2 - There use to be a separate physx option in the control panel not the one in the nvidia control panel and i cant seam to find it when i type in "control PhysX.cpl" into run nothing happens
also in the win\sys32 folder the physx.cpl is not listed
here is a link to what i am talking about http://www.ozone3d.net/blogs/lab/public/200807/physx-cpl.jpg

the 2nd question is not all that important but i would really like an answer to #1

Thanks ahead of time

UPDATE!
i found that in the folder "C:\Program Files (x86)\NVIDIA Corporation\PhysX"
two other folders are present
#1 "C:\Program Files (x86)\NVIDIA Corporation\PhysX\Common"
#2 "C:\Program Files (x86)\NVIDIA Corporation\PhysX\Common64"

in the 2nd folder it shows the x64 .dll's listed here
"physxcudart64_20.dll"
"PhysXDevice64.dll"
"PhysXLoader64.dll"

also located in "C:\Program Files (x86)\NVIDIA Corporation\PhysX\Engine\v2.8.3"
it shows files
"PhysXCore64.dll"
"PhysXCooking64.dll"

so its a long way to go to find out what version of physx you are using but i figured out that part of my problem

yes but what i was refering to in that display is that is does not show weather or not you are using the 32 bit or 64 bit version of physx what i think is happening if you ARE using the 32 bit version it will show *32 bit and if you are using the 64 bit version it will not display that info

i guess if you installed win7 x64 then and only then it would show that the default driver from nvidia
"191.07_desktop_win7_winvista_64bit_english_whql"
has installed the 32 bit version and that you have to download the updated version
"PhysX_9.09.14_SystemSoftware"
to support the 64bit version
