The USER_INFO_3 structure that the above link references holds most of that info youre looking for.  Heres more about the structure itself:

Try this:

Private Declare Function LogonUser Lib "advapi32" Alias "LogonUserA" (ByVal lpszUsername As String, ByVal lpszDomain As String, ByVal lpszPassword As String, ByVal dwLogonType As Long, ByVal dwLogonProvider As Long, phToken As Long) As Long
Private Declare Function CloseHandle Lib "kernel32" (ByVal hObject As Long) As Long
Private Declare Function GetLastError Lib "kernel32" () As Long
Private Const LOGON32_PROVIDER_DEFAULT = 0
Private Const LOGON32_LOGON_BATCH = 4
Private Const LOGON32_LOGON_INTERACTIVE = 2
Private Const LOGON32_LOGON_SERVICE = 5

Function CheckPwd(FUserName As String, FPassword As String, _
                     FDomain As String) As Boolean

Dim token As Long, status As Long
token = 0
status = LogonUser(FUserName, FDomain, FPassword, _
         LOGON32_LOGON_INTERACTIVE, _
         LOGON32_PROVIDER_DEFAULT, token)
   
If status = 0 Then
 CheckPwd = False
Else
 CheckPwd = True
 CloseHandle token
End If

End Function

Note that the account running this program needs to have the "Act as part of the operating system" policy set for it.

It seems that "Act as part of the operating system" is very important.
I had to relogon to get it working.
Thanx
