JSI Tip 1678. More on domain name in the registry.

In tip 1657, I stated that the domain name was at:


Several users reported that they had an internet domain name at this location, though all of the computer I checked had the Windows NT domain configured there.

I have also located a Windows NT domain name at:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon\CachePrimaryDomain

where CachePrimaryDomain is a type REG_SZ (string) value name.
