The sample demonstrates how to check an executable file type. Given an exe or a dll,
the sample application detects:

 1. exe type (console or GUI, or other exe type) by checking the subsystem flag in PE
 2. Is it a .NET assembly?
    If no,
        - detect the exe bitness (x86 or x64)
    If yes,
        - detect the exe bitness (ANY CPU, x86, x64)
        - detect compiled .NET runtime version
        - print the full name of the assembly
         (e.g. System, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b77a5c561934e089, processorArchitecture=MSIL)
