I am writing an applicaiton in Visual C++. I have been able to get the the user of the machine using GetUserName function. Now I would like to get the role of this user in the windows operating system. Basically I want to check if the user is administrator. Based on that I can then execute certain functionality in my application.

Now can anyone help me how I can achive this without using managed code?

Thanks in advance.
