I want to get information about windows user log on.... I know that the function GetUserName I get Windows User Name, but I´d like to get User Id and Session(for example: Console).

Do know any function similar to GetUseName that I can use to get User Id and Session?

To get the user id:

string Userid = System.Security.Principal.WindowsIdentity.GetCurrent().Name.ToString();

For the session ID you can access the kernel API:

using System.Runtime.InteropServices;

        [DllImport("kernel32.dll")]
        private static extern int WTSGetActiveConsoleSessionId();

Thanks for you answer-...

Does WTSGetActiveConsoleSessionId() work only for Windows Terminal Server?

do you know any solution for Visual C++ 6.0?

Thanks,

It shoudl work also with Citrix products. The WTSGetActiveConsoleSessionId() is part of the Windows kernel, so can be used also with non .NET apps.
