Determine if user is logged on...

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

Fairly new user here, have been writing lot of scripts over the past few weeks...but I'm stumped right now.

I am deploying packages using Everdream(www.everdream.com) and want my package to determine if a user is logged into the computer. If a user is logged on, I want it to popup a dialog before installing. If nobody is logged on, I want it to run my installer right away.

I found this code, but this only gets some information out of the registry...and doesn't determine if that user is currently logged in. Any ideas? Thanks!


Const $HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE = 0x80000002

Dim $strKeyPath, $strValueName, $strValue

$strComputer = "localhost"

$objRegistry=ObjGet("winmgmts:\\" & $strComputer & "\root\default:StdRegProv")

$strKeyPath = "SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\WinLogon"

$strValueName = "DefaultUserName"

$objRegistry.GetStringValue ($HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE, $strKeyPath, $strValueName, $strValue)

$localuser = $strValue

@UserName will return the name of the currently logged on user. I am not sure what it will return if no-one is loggen on.

When deploying packages with Everdream, the @Username was returning "SYSTEM"...since that is the user the process runs as...

Instead, I used the "ProcessExists()" function and checked for "explorer.exe".
