Following the example on http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms180916.aspx

My following code is getting me an error.  How can I correct this?  Thanks.

Error      2      Cannot implicitly convert type 'int' to 'bool'      C:\Projects\UnityAdmin\Main.cs      821


int disabled = (int)deChild.Properties["userAccountControl"].Value;
if ((disabled) & (UF_ACCOUNTDISABLE))//if disable then use the disabled icon
    newLvNode = NodeDetail.Items.Add
        (new ListViewItem(new string[] { commonName, os, osVersion }, 2));
else
    newLvNode = NodeDetail.Items.Add
        (new ListViewItem(new string[] { commonName, os, osVersion }, 11));

I believe that the if statement you want should be this...

int UF_ACCOUNTDISABLE = 0x2;
bool disabled = (deChild.Properties["userAccountControl"].Value & UF_ACCOUNTDISABLE == UF_ACCOUNTDISABLE);

          if (disabled)
          {
          }

If it gives you an error please send it here... and try this next

int UF_ACCOUNTDISABLE = 0x2;
bool disabled = (((int)deChild.Properties["userAccountControl"].Value & UF_ACCOUNTDISABLE) == UF_ACCOUNTDISABLE);

          if (disabled)
          {
          }
