WhoAmI is a utility I wrote and released for free in 10/December/1996. This is a Windows command line program that displays the currently logged in user on a particular Windows Machine, FQDN (Fully Qualified Domain Name of the PC) and how much time has passed since you started this Windows session and the path of Windows Directory.

Download the utility from here & full source code from here.

Platform:    Microsoft Windows ‘9x, Windows NT 4.0 & Windows 2000
Executable Size:    32K
Any Dependent Dll’s:    Nil
Development  platform:    Microsoft Visual C++ 6.0 SP1

“Who Am I” displays the
1) Computer Name,
2) Current logged-in User Name,
3) Current Windows Session running time,
4) Windows Directory,
5) Fully Qualified Domain Name (FQDN) using WinSock

The FQDN was added following a request from Mr.Ranganathan, Texas, USA.

1) Its convenient to create a shortcut for this program and put it in the desktop, next to the Network Neighbourhood Icon.

2) When you have pressed cancel in the login dialog box of Windows ‘9x, the program  will report that it cannot find the user name. This is the default behaviour Windows ‘9x  and has nothing to do with the program.
