How to find out whether a plugin DLL is VST2 or VST3

Often, I find on the internet free plugins which come without a setup.exe.
Therefore I need a way to figure out whether these are VST 2 or VST3 to know to where to install them.
I could not find any articles or forums posts or utilities to help me with this.
Does anybody know the answer?


DLL files are always VST2. VST3 plug-ins have the *.VST3 extension.
