Windows XP login name display in cold fusion

P: 3
I am working on a site using coldfusion, javascipt, and SQL Server 2005. I would like one of the fields on a form to autopopulate the user logged into the windows PC that is accessing the site. This is for an intranet based site and all the users should have similar pc's with Windows XP OS. I looked into WMI and think the solution lies in there, but have not been able to find the proper syntax to try. Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks

That wouldn't be possible with Coldfusion or JavaScript for that matter. You might get away with ActiveX scripting.

thank you I will look into that. Do you happen to have a good source for Active X info?

You could try this link from the MSDN documentation.
