I installed the 64-bit version of iTunes a while ago, have had two or three automatic updates since and now have v9.1.1.12. However, when I look at the Processors list in Task Manager I only see a process for "iTunes *32". There is no reference to a 64-bit version in Help>About iTunes and the iTunes 64-bit installer link on the Apple site does not give the version number of the 64-bit version.

How can we be assured we have been updated to the current 64-bit version of iTunes?

Why does Apple seem to keep the 64-bit version number such a secret on its website?

    The only real differences between the 32 bit and 64 bit versions of iTunes are the drivers &, I think, in Bonjour which also has drivers. If you check in the "Help/about iTunes" tab it won't tell you whether or not you've loaded the 64 bit but even on my Win7 64 bit machine the process is iTunes*32. The link to the 64 bit version is on the iTunes download page but here's a direct link http://support.apple.com/kb/DL1037

    So it appears there is no way to tell we have the 64-bit version unless we go to the 64-bit link and reinstall it? How bizarre!

    Because there is no 64 bit iTunes application. It is only 32 bit.
    The 64 bit installer includes 64 bit drivers but again, the application itself is only 32 bit.
