How do you find the computer SID

Recommended Posts

This information doesn't seem to be present in the WMI classes that the program uses. However user accounts classes have SID's. They are not displayed by the program, but if you look inside an XML file that the program stores the computer information in, and find the tag Win32_UserAccount that corresponds to a local user, there is a SID field. If you drop the last part of its value (for example, "-500" for Administrator user), that will be the computer's SID.
