Hi

I wish to get the name of the Domain,  the workstation the programme is running, is on.

My Program is written in Visual C++ 5, using the MFC AppWizard.

I have tried using GetUserName() to get user ID for the LookUpAccountName()function.
Which according to MSDN returns the domain name.

When run on NT Dr. Watson kicks in...

Current code below...


CString PCInformation::GetDomainName()
{
      LPTSTR lpAccountName= " ";       
      DWORD cbAccountName = 20;
      PSID Sid;
        LPDWORD cbSid;        
      LPTSTR ReferencedDomainName = " ";
        LPDWORD cbReferencedDomainName;
             PSID_NAME_USE peUse;

      GetUserName(lpAccountName, &cbAccountName);
      
LookupAccountName(NULL, lpAccountName, Sid, cbSid, ReferencedDomainName, cbReferencedDomainName, peUse);

      return (LPSTR)ReferencedDomainName;

}

Any help would be much appreciated..

Cheers

It looks like that you declare GetUserAndDomainName as a public member function of your PCInformation class. But how do you define it? Do you forget to put PCInformation:: right before GetUserAndDomainName?

I did indeed forget to stick PCInformation:: in.

Cheers for your help
