Test whether script launched by standard or administrative user?

I think this should be easy, but I can’t find the answer.

How can an Applescript test whether it has been launched by a user with a standard account or one with an administrative account? I want the script to copy some files into one folder if the user has a standard account, but into a different folder if the user has an administrative account.

Many thanks for any help with this.

Hi,

this handler checks whether the current user has admin status


checkAdminAccount()

on checkAdminAccount()
	set {short user name:shortName} to (system info)
	set admins to do shell script "/usr/bin/dscl . -read /Groups/admin |  /usr/bin/grep GroupMembership"
	set {TID, text item delimiters} to {text item delimiters, space}
	set admins to text items 2 thru -1 of admins
	set text item delimiters to TID
	return {shortName} is in admins
end checkAdminAccount

Perfect. Thank you!
