In Delphi (XE4), is it possible to check if a given user name is a Windows Administrator?

(I have found plenty of examples of testing the current user but I need to be able to check any given user name, whether the current user or not.)

How are you getting the user names?

What is the purpose?

My apologies - in attempting to answer your question, I have realised that I do not need to do any checks on the given user name (because Windows will do it anyway before using it).

So, I shouldn't have even asked the question in the first place!
