map computer logged user

I have a list of computers. I need to find out logged on user or last logged on user on these computers.
Is there any automated way, instead of doing it manually one by one.
Most of the workstations are XP Sp3

with pstools you can see who is logged on to a PC.  You still have to do it 1 by 1, but it could be automated with a program.

I wrote a C# program that uses a foreach statement to do this.  I'm sure it could be scripted just as easily.

You can just download the zip file.  Rename "LastLoggedOn" to "LastLoggedOn.exe" before you try to run it.  Also make sure you download PS Tools from the link I provided earlier.

A few things, everything in the admin area is driven by the config file, so those settings will save if you change them.  Make sure to check your path of the PS Tools before you try running it.  The "Ping PC First" will ping the PC before it attempts to see who is logged on, the "Show Local Logins" only will only show users that are locally logged in, the default shows local and remote users. The split char is the only item you have to click save to, all other items save automatically.

Also you can load multiple PC's at once by using the split character.  So the default is a semi-colon and if you put in the names like I have below it will enter the three names
pc1; pc2; pc3

You can change that split character if you want.

You can also clear the PC list and results list by double clicking those lists.

normally i generate a list of computers in a file one computer on a row.
Is there any way to provide this list( around 1000 computers) to program. Or any idea how to convert the content of this file to be comp1;comp2;comp3; etc...

What I done is copy that list and transpose the names in excel.  Then I copy that to a notepad or word document and replace the tab that is generated by excel with a semi-colon.  Maybe not the most efficient way, but it works.

Cool glad its working.  That program may say not responding while running, I made it to run about 10-20 PC's at most.  You may want to break your list up into smaller chunk and copy the data out.
