Has Administrator Privilege (GPL)

"HasAdminPrivilege.cmd" is a Windows batch program that can helps you determine whether your script is running as administrator or not. "HasAdminPrivilege.cmd" outputs 1 (for true) when it is running with admin privilege. Otherwise, it outputs 0 (for false).

"HasAdminPrivilege.cmd" takes advantage of the "SetNumberOfArguments.bat" (GPL) script that is also available on this web site. So to use "HasAdminPrivilege.cmd", you'll have to download "SetNumberOfArguments.bat", if you don't already have it.

"HasAdminPrivilege.cmd" is distributed as executable source code under the GNU General Public License. Please see the license agreement elsewhere on this site.

Seems like Microsoft changed its system operation slightly, because this script no longer works on my Windows 10 Home. Not sure which Windows update caused the change in behavior. But I've modified the script slightly to make it work on the latest update.

Found that Windows 10 Pro and Windows 10 Home operates differently, producing different results. Updated the script so that it now operates reliably on both Windows 10 Pro and Windows 10 Home.
