  var Domain, Username: string): Boolean;
var
  
SecDescr: PSecurityDescriptor;
  SizeNeeded, SizeNeeded2: DWORD;
  OwnerSID: PSID;
  OwnerDefault: BOOL;
  OwnerName, DomainName: PChar;
  OwnerType: SID_NAME_USE;
begin
  
GetFileOwner := False;
  GetMem(SecDescr, 1024);
  GetMem(OwnerSID, SizeOf(PSID));
  GetMem(OwnerName, 1024);
  GetMem(DomainName, 1024);
  try
