I have a VB.Net subroutine that I run on load to capture the user ID of the authenticated user. I use the variable, for example, to notify the user via email of the results. How would I do this in vbscript. Below is the code.

Thanks!
Protected Sub Page_Load(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Me.Load
        lblResults.Visible = False
        imgCheckMark.Visible = False
        imgRedX.Visible = False
        strDate = Now
        strUser = (Request.ServerVariables("AUTH_USER"))
 
        If InStr(strUser, "Domain\") Then
            strUser = Replace(strUser, "Domain\", "")
        End If
 
        If InStr(strUser, "Domain\") Then
            strUser = Replace(strUser, "Domain\", "")
        End If
        Label28.Text = strUser
    End Sub

if you are talking about currently logged on user then you can use the script below:
To get just the userID without a domain, use this instead of the last line:

MsgBox "Current User: " & sCurrentUser
Set oNet = CreateObject("WScript.Network")
 
sDomain = oNet.UserDomain
sCurrentUser = oNet.UserName
 
MsgBox "Current User: "& sDomain & "\" & sCurrentUser
