What context are you running this in?

PS doesn't have an IfMember equivalent. You can write one, or you can use a number of different methods exposed by the .NET framework. Which is appropriate depends on context.

will be a deployment by sccm

would have like to do one PS script but i guess  three seperate packages would do.

so the PS script will be called by sccm install.cmd

not sure if this helps but..

the package runs as a (svc account )

a seperate package ruiing as a user process will then copy the files to profile path (as administrater)

So it'll be running in the context of a user logging on to a system?

I can be done, but you won't get a quick "ifmember" type command simply because there isn't one.

That said, we can get reasonably close. Perhaps like this, it will return a Boolean value. This example tests for membership of Domain Users:

([ADSI]"WinNT://$($Env:UserDnsDomain)/Domain Users").IsMember("WinNT://$($Env:UserDnsDomain)/$($Env:UserName)")

Note that the group name you use must be the Pre-Windows 2000 Group Name.
