Detecting FolderRedirection, Synchronisation settings and permissions

I need to be able to check the following settings on each PC (via my Access database)

Is FolderRedirection / Synchronisation enabled (True/False)
Does a specific Roaming folder have full read/write access (True/False)

Any ideas?

You cn use winmgmts to read registry
Sub GetRegString()  

02     Dim objReg As Object 

03     Dim strComputer As String 

04     Dim strKeyPath As String 

05     Dim strValueName As String 

06     Dim strValue  


08     strComputer = "." 


10      Set objReg = GetObject("winmgmts:" _  

11         & "{impersonationLevel=impersonate}!\" _  

12         & strComputer & "\root\default:StdRegProv")  


14     strKeyPath = "SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\App Paths\MSACCESS.EXE" 

15     strValueName = "Path" 


17     objReg.GetStringValue HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE, strKeyPath, strValueName, strValue  

18     Debug.Print "Microsoft Access Location: " & strValue  


20     Set objReg = Nothing
