Q

It there a GetUserName function for Win32?

I'm building an application that needs to grab the Novell username after a login to an NT/2000 desktop. It there a GetUserName function like that for Win32?
I'm sure there is. As far as I understand, Novell is plugging into the Windows authentication system, I'm surprised that GetUserName doesn't work. If it's not working, you'll need to get the Novell development libraries in order to call into the Novell code to retrieve the information. There's more information on the Novell API's at www.novel.com.
