How to get current windows user name using ASP .NET

Posted by Dmitrij Ivanov on September 21, 2010

There are three different ways to obtain the same information.
protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
{
  System.Security.Principal.WindowsPrincipal windowsPrincipal = System.Threading.Thread.CurrentPrincipal as System.Security.Principal.WindowsPrincipal;
  string identityName1way = windowsPrincipal.Identity.Name;
  string identityName2way = HttpContext.Current.User.Identity.Name;
  string identityName3way = Request.ServerVariables["AUTH_USER"];
  Label1.Text = identityName1way + " or " + identityName2way + " or " + identityName3way;
}

The Web.config file should have authentication mode set to Windows.
<configuration>
  <system.web>
     <authentication mode="Windows" />
     ...
  </system.web>
</configuration>

Visual Studio 2010 could be slow on XP, Vista and Windows Server 2003/2008 systems

Posted by Dmitrij Ivanov on September 17, 2010

The cause of the slowness may depend on UIA  (Windows Automation) installed on your system. UIA3 is shipped with Windows 7  and is raccomended Windows Update patch on Xp and Vista.

If you are running on Windows XP, Vista, or Windows Server 2003 or 2008 and are seeing any performance issues with the editor or IDE,  install the free UIA 3 update that can be downloaded from this page.  If you scroll down the page you’ll find direct links to versions for each OS.

geek in action

Hi everyone my name is Dmitrij Ivanov and I’m the first fan of the information technology in my family. Eventually I’ve decided to start this blog in english because I would like to improve my english. Every report on grammar or language mistakes are really appreciated! I would like to start to use this place to share my own experience about IT solutions I’ve done in the past and I put effort every day.
Excited by this new experience I’m going into the dimasite lab to start working on the next post.

last pomodoro!
