Hello, I am trying to find out the name of the current user, or the name of the account for the current user. I'm trying to write one program that can accomodate different users based upon who is logged in. I looked at some registry entries and functions, but didn't really find anything. Is there some obscure windows API function that would allow me to do this, mainly so that settings from one user doesn't overide the settings of the other. Also I'm trying to make this happen automatically, so I'm avoiding logins. Thx for any help!!
