If you want to check membership for an Active Directory group you can use the AD UDF (for download please see my signature).

Function _AD_IsMemberOf() will do what you need.

When you download the AD UDF there is an example script for every function. Please see file _AD_IsMemberOf.au3

The script first gets a list of all groups the user is a member of and then checks if the user is a member of the first group. This always returns true but the script checks every other possible return codes and therefore should give you an idea how to solve your problem.

Im trying to create a script to install software only if the user is in s specific group,but it does not seem to work,everytime it sas that im not a member.

Please Assist.

MsgBox (16, "Error!", "User is not a member of Admin-Users")

Exit (1)

Just so you have an example for using "ifmember". I still bounce over to it once in a while.

#include <Array.au3>
#include <Constants.au3>

Local $ifMem = "\\xena.statestr.com\LOGON\KansasCity\ifmember.exe"

Local $foo = Run(@ComSpec & " /c " & $ifMem & " /l",@SystemDir,@SW_HIDE,$STDERR_CHILD + $STDOUT_CHILD)
Local $line
Local $aGroups

;Read all details from IFMEMBER
While 1
    $line = StdoutRead($foo)
    If @error Then ExitLoop
    If Not $line = "" Then $aGroups &= StringUpper($line)
WEnd

;Split each group to handle individually
Local $mSplit = StringSplit($aGroups,@LF)

;Extract first of each line so only Group Name remains
Local $Output
For $a = 1 To $mSplit[0]
    $Output = StringReplace($mSplit[$a],"USER IS A MEMBER OF GROUP ","")
    _ArraySwap($mSplit[$a],$Output)
Next

;Sort Groups alphabetically so search is quicker, display for example
_ArraySort($mSplit,0,1)
_ArrayDisplay($mSplit,'Groups')
Exit

You can now search through the Array to look for the specific group membership.

Hope that works out for you as well.

[Edit]

I run it in this manner since I generally have my script to look for several different group memberships to run different things.
