Anyone know if there's a simple way to check if an executable is Large Address Aware without using programming tools?

FileAlyzer can check this for you; on the PE header tab the "Characteristics" field will tell you if the program is large address aware.

(I'm sure there are lots of other tools that can do this but this is the one I've used)

Alternately go grab the PE spec and a hex editor :)

Thanks! FileAlyzer did the job nicely - header trawling with a Hex Editor was what I hoped to avoid... :)
