[Help] Obtain user information using IDirectorySearch RRS feed

  • Question

  • I need to obtain the username of the currently logged in user on a machine.

    For example, if I want login my computer with my AD account and I want to get “distinguished name” of “currently login user”, it should show the information which is “DC=XXX, OU=XXXX, CN=myname” (my disdinguished name).

    Is there a way to get “name” or “distinguished Name” of currently login user either in c++ or LDAP filter?

  • Hi Willian,

    I'm moving this thread to "Security for Applications in Microsoft Windows" forum, since the issue is related to Widnows Security. There are more Windows Security experts in the "Security for Application in Microsoft Windows" forum.

    Best Regards,
