Malte, should work the same under XP. The shell command "set user" gives the reply:

userdnsdomain=fake.edu
userdomain=fake_domain
username=fake_name
userprofile=C:\Documents and Settings\mike
-----------------------------------------------

Can anyone test if this works under XP and / or WIn 7, even when not logged in with admin rights?

-- I'm afraid to log in any way except the way I always do it -- I might screw something up.
