User and Local Groups authentication on Windows
I am having Excel (using VBA code) which makes NetLocalGetGroups() and GetUserNameW()
calls to get the user name and the local groups to which user belongs. These
calls actually look into the local system (or user desktop) for NetAPI32.dll
and advapi32.dll which means user should be running Excel on WindowsNT w/s
to get these info.
Given possibility that user could be running the Excel on Windows 98 or 95,
is it possible to make this authentication work independant of the user OS
or possibly make VBA code to look in for these dlls from the NT server which
holds the domain info (thro path settings).
Thanks in advance
