GID is a unix concept. Windows users don't exactly have a primary group. Are you just looking for the "member of" list from AD, or local machine?

Hello, Mr. PsaltyDS,

Thanks a lot for your interest !

GID is a unix concept.

Excuse-me... unix is sometimes more comprehensible than windows for me...

Windows users don't exactly have a primary group. Are you just looking for the "member of" list from AD, or local machine?

Maybe... yes. But depending on system language, members groups are according those languages...

cheers

Huh???

:shocked:

If you mean "Power Users" might be translated to something else if the system's default lanquage is not English, that would only impact presentation of the group name to a user. Get the list by use of WMI COM objects and you can work with them anyway, without knowing beforehand what they might be. If you run "NET LOCALGROUPS" on the commandline you'll see the groups presented with any translation that might take place, I think. Can't test that right now.

:(
