Listing admins for remote computers

Listing admins for remote computers

Is there a way to pass in a local workstation’s host name and get a return of a list of the local administrators for that workstation? I have seen this in the Hyena program and wanted to do the same from VB5/VB6 code.

On a form with a command button and a listbox, paste the following code:

Private Sub Command1_Click()   Dim vntRtn As Variant   Dim lngNumItems As Long   Dim lngLoop As Long      Me.List1.Clear      vntRtn = Module1.GetAdminUsers("PDCNEW")      On Error Resume Next   lngNumItems = UBound(vntRtn)   On Error GoTo 0      If lngNumItems > 0 Then      For lngLoop = 1 To lngNumItems         Me.List1.AddItem vntRtn(lngLoop)      Next lngLoop   End If   End Sub

In a BAS file called Module1, paste the following code:
