Not reliably. The program may link in specific DLLs, which may give a
clue, or the code may otherwise have certain artifacts peculiar to one
particular compiler, but there is no general way to discover this.
Most, if not all, potential identifying information was removed as
part of the compilation process.
Of course, this begs the question "why do you want to know?"
