Don't know if it's helpful for your purposes, but you could Microsoft's getsid.exe utility from the Windows rsource kit tools

http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc779004(WS.10).aspx

You could use this within a batch file to set an environment variable ... you can find an example here:

later on you could use the reg.exe utility to automate your modification under the approiate HKEY_USERS subkey.

Kind Regards,
