reg query HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\WindowsNT\CurrentVersion\ProfileList\\ProfileImagePath.

In this case, the identifier may be displayed as a string, byte array, or combination of values WellKnownSidType SID and domain. An additional condition of obtaining the desired result is to appeal to the WindowsIdentity class. The syntax of this command looks like:
using System;
using System.Security.Principal;
namespace GetSID
class Program
static void Main (string[] args)
WindowsIdentity wid = Windowsidentity.GetCurrent();
Console.WriteLine(wid.Name + SID is 0, wid.User.Value);
} } }.
