Does anyone know how to return the GLUT Window Class'' Name (default) as I wish to use it for initialising Direct Play for a demonstration I''m setting up about the workings of DirectX and OpenGL and how they complement each other.

Bad bad idea. The GLUT library is used for portability. Using DirectX throws portability out of the
window. So, if you are going to use DirectX, use windows-specific code to make a window...

You could just use SDL to handle input (instead of DirectInput), window creation (instead of GLUT), and more without ever losing portability (like OS independent threads).
