I haven't found a programatically way to fill the user2_country_code and user2_code_page fields in the USER_INFO_2 structure.  How could I get the default settings for country code and code page of the machine where the NetUserAdd is running ?

Check the setlocale() function.  Use NULL as the second argument to query instead of set the locale.

Or, even better: GetLocaleInfo()

Alexo's proposed answer worked, but it wasn't as easy as I'd like to implement because the parameters needed to call the GetLocaleInfo() API wasn't given in the answer.

I used the following lines in my program:

GetLocaleInfo(LOCALE_SYSTEM_DEFAULT, LOCALE_IDEFAULT_COUNTRY, Buf, sizeof( Buf ) );
Info.usri2_country_code=atol( Buf );

GetLocaleInfo(LOCALE_SYSTEM_DEFAULT, LOCALE_IDEFAULT_CODEPAGE, Buf, sizeof( Buf ) );
Info.usri2_code_page=atol( Buf );

Yep.  That's how MS implemented it :-(
