8 posts in this topic

Hi,

I'm doing some tests with @USerName, and it doesnt' work when used in the login script process with Win98. Is there any other way to get the user who is logging in?

SInce @Username is the name of the logged in user it isn't going to work until the user is logged in.

If you are switching users from A to B then it should return the name of user A until the loggout phase of user A is completed

But it works in NT machines (NT4, 2000, XP, 2003). The user is already logged in (since the login script is executed after the credentials are verified).

That's right but the login for 98 doesn't work the same way. I don't know of any way to do it in 98

Edit: I'm jammed right now but give me a couple of days and I might find an answer. I know I have a VBScript someplace that should do it and I'll just convert tat to AutoIt.

Playing with the registry, i was able to get it via:

$userName = RegRead("HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Network\Logon","username")

Maybe you can add it to the functions performed by @UserName macro?

Thanks.

@LogonServer and @LogonDomain didn't work either, got it via:

$logonDomain = RegRead("HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Security\Provider","Container")

$logonServer = RegRead("HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Security\Provider","address_server")

Thanks.

Good work! Now I don't have to look it up.
