Is it possible using Delphi 1 or 2 to get the username of the user currently logged onto Win NT, e.g. using a Windows API function or samething like toat?

var  FUser: array [0..100] of char;
     FLength: integer;
begin
  GetUserName(FUser,fLength);
  Showmessage(strpas(FUser))
end;

This works very well on a WinNT network, thanks a lot, but it won't work on a Win95 machine with a network card installed. Any hints for that? (on this machine, there is only one user with no password, so maybe you have to use another routine)

Sorry, I don't have 95 on my machine, I tested it only on NT. See:
