    .SYNOPSIS
        Determines whether the architecture of the local operating system is 64-bit.

    .DESCRIPTION
        The Test-64BitOS function uses the IsWow64Process function to determine whether the process is running under WOW64. It also checks whether the process is 64-bit in this test.

    .INPUTS
        None
            This function does not accept any input.

    .OUTPUTS
        None
            This function does not return any output.

    .NOTES
        Using this function is more reliable than other methods as the function uses a method provided by the operating system to determine whether the process is running under WOW64.
                    
    .EXAMPLE
        C:\PS> Test-64BitOS
        
        This example shows how to use the Test-64BitOS function.
