Solved!
Go to solution

hi,

 

I have a need to display the pc host name(login name) in my application. How can i get it using labview in runtime i.e. if i write a program and execute it in different PC systems/same system with different users, then i should get the corresponding login names.

 

Can any one help me on this?

 

Thanks,

 

Regards,

Arvinth

Well, the PC host name and the login name are two different things, so which one are you trying to get? Darin's snippet gives you the login name. If you want the PC name use this method.

Now you are asking about real-time instead of run-time. There is a big difference. What exactly do you want?
