Forked to modify so that if url's contain a mix of http and https, function still works.

$admin_directory = ABSPATH.'/wp-admin/';

Only if admin directory is left as standard. It might be changed as a security measure.

Nope it might not, it's hardcoded as well in the core and in so much stuff, you cannot rename or move this directory, not the same for other dirs like WP_CONTENT_DIR or WP_PLUGIN_DIR which can be changed and thus have a defined constant
