    User last login information

    Hello,

    I need to get the last login information of an user to show it in my VC++ application.
    Do you know where can I get that information?
    Thanks.

    I'm sure there is an easier way of doing this but, when I had to do that for work I used a VB script and sent the output to a file (i.e. “UserLoginTimes.log”). Then inside C++ I parsed the file to find the user I wanted the info from.

    Here is the script I used…

    Code:
    ' List last logon times
    ' 2005 Zak AInsworth
    On Error Resume Next
    sEnterDCs = "NSOLAB"
    sObjects = Split(sEnterDCs, ",")
    Set oDomain = GetObject("WinNT://" & sObjects(0))
    oDomain.Filter = Array("User")
    WScript.Echo "Showing last login times of accounts from: " & oDomain.Name & vbNewLine
     For Each oDomainItem In oDomain
      sUsrLogin = oDomainItem.LastLogin
      If UBound(sObjects) >= 1 Then
        For ii = 1 To UBound(sObjects)
          Set oUsr = GetObject("WinNT://" & sObjects(ii) & "/" & oDomainItem.Name & ",user")
          If oUsr.LastLogin > sUsrLogin Then sUsrLogin = oUsr.LastLogin
        Next
      End If
      WScript.Echo "Username: " & Left(oDomainItem.Name & Space(22),22) & "Last login: " & FormatDateTime(sUsrLogin)
    Next
    (on the line ‘sEnterDCs = "NSOLAB"’, change “NSOLAB” to your domain name.)

    Name the script something like “GetUserLoginTimes.vbs”.

    You can add this line of code to your C++ source…

    Code:
    System(“cscript GetUserLoginTimes.vbs > UserLoginTimes.log”);
    This will run the script and send the output to “UserLoginTimes.log”.

    Now it’s up to you to do the parsing. The script lists each user on a new line which makes is pretty easy.

    Good Luck…
