Require Administrator Privileges ( VB6.,0 )

I have an application made in visual basic v6.0 .. i am curious to know if there is any way to add a rule to the software so it will require admin privileges so it can run..

Any easy way to do this?

u can add a validation code in your app to check the user who runs the app.
if he's not a domain admin or local admin, notify and close the app.

here's a code snippet:
Private Declare Function IsNTAdmin Lib "advpack.dll" (ByVal dwReserved As Long, ByRef lpdwReserved _ As Long) As Long

Private Sub Form_Load()
Debug.Print "Are you an Administrator? " & CBool(IsNTAdmin(ByVal 0&, ByVal 0&))
End Sub

Open in new window
