Yes, win32security is a part of pywin32 extensions.
According to MSDN, you may be able to get user's directory by using
Calling win32net.NetUserGetInfo(None, 'test_user', 1) returns a dictionary:
In my case, home_dir is empty. This sucks, so I tried a different way:
from win32com.shell import shellcon, shell
path = shell.SHGetFolderPath(0, shellcon.CSIDL_APPDATA, 0, 0)
In this case, path is u'C:\\Documents and Settings\\<My
Username>\\Application Data'. To get other users' data directories, you
can either cheat and simply replace <My Username> with their usernames,
or go the whole way honestly: get user's access token (I guess by
impersonating him), and pass the token to the SHGetFolderPath function.
There's also a way to query Active Directory through LDAP, but it does
not help much in my case:
>>> adsi = win32com.client.Dispatch('ADSystemInfo')
>>> u = win32com.client.GetObject('LDAP://%s' % adsi.UserName)
>>> print u.homeDirectory
I guess the NetUserGetInfo and the LDAP methods rely on info in
ActiveDirectory, which may or may not be present.
