public enum PortableExecutableKinds

Member nameDescription
NotAPortableExecutableImageThe file is not in portable executable (PE) file format.
ILOnlyThe executable contains only Microsoft intermediate language (MSIL), and is therefore neutral with respect to 32-bit or 64-bit platforms.
Required32BitThe executable can be run on a 32-bit platform, or in the 32-bit Windows on Windows (WOW) environment on a 64-bit platform.
PE32PlusThe executable requires a 64-bit platform.
Unmanaged32BitThe executable contains pure unmanaged code.

To obtain this value for a module, use the Module.GetPEKind method.
