Is it possible to check if my app is running As Admin ?

for example, you right-click a file and click "Run as administrator", how can i know my app has been clicked "Run as admin" and not just by double clicking it ?

You can also try to create Key in Local_Machine root, is your application has admin privilege, the result will be true, look at this example


uses
 Registry;

function IsAdmin : Boolean;
var
  Reg: TRegistry;
begin
  Reg := TRegistry.Create;
    try
    Reg.RootKey := HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE;
    if Reg.OpenKey('SOFTWARE', True) then Result := Reg.CreateKey('')
    else Result := False;
    finally
    Reg.CloseKey;
    Reg.Free;
    end;
end;
