Get a list of all users on one machine.

Hi!

How can i get a list of all users on a machine...

maybe like this

Users[0] == "Meier",
Users[1] == "Hans",
....

PS: I mean the windows logon users. Maybe there ist something like EnumUsers?

Thanks for advance.

The one way that I know of doing this is to use the NetUserEnum() function.

Have a look at this link:

http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/library/en-us/netmgmt/netmgmt/NetUserEnum.asp

That explains the function and carries a sample of how to use the function. It should work great for your needs.

And here's a sample on how to use it along with 'NetQueryDisplayInformation()' to get the details: http://win32.mvps.org/network/nue_nqdi.cpp

#include <windows.h>
#include <lm.h>
#include <stdio.h>
#pragma hdrstop



// 28jul97 felixk   fixed a nasty bug in do_NetQueryDisplayInformation
//                  (next_index was set even if read == 0: accvio)


void print_user( const wchar_t *name, DWORD flags )
{
      // NOTE: capital "S" in a printf format string means "Unicode",
      // if we are an ANSI program

      printf( "%-40.40S ", name ); // display Unicode user name
      if ( flags & UF_NORMAL_ACCOUNT )
            puts( "(domain user)" );
      else if ( flags & UF_TEMP_DUPLICATE_ACCOUNT )
            puts( "(local user)" );
      else if ( flags & UF_WORKSTATION_TRUST_ACCOUNT )
            puts( "(computer account)" );
      else if ( flags & UF_SERVER_TRUST_ACCOUNT )
            puts( "(PDC/BDC computer account)" );
      else if ( flags & UF_INTERDOMAIN_TRUST_ACCOUNT )
            puts( "(trusted domain account)" );
      else
            puts( "(funny account type)" );
}



void do_NetUserEnum( const wchar_t *server )
{
      USER_INFO_1 *buf, *cur;
      DWORD read, totalremaining, resumeh, rc, i;

      resumeh = 0;
      do
      {

            rc = NetUserEnum( server, 1, 0, (BYTE **) &buf, 1024, &read, &totalremaining, &resumeh );

            printf( "\ngot %lu entries out of %lu\n", read, totalremaining );
            for ( i = 0, cur = buf; i < read; ++ i, ++ cur )
                  print_user( cur->usri1_name, cur->usri1_flags );

            if ( buf != NULL )

      } while ( rc == ERROR_MORE_DATA );
