In tip 0120, the %UserName%, %ComputerName%, and %LogonServer% variables could be retrieved by Kixtart and set into W9x by WINSET.

You can use PUTINENV.EXE to retrieve these environment variables and WINSET.EXE, from the W9x CD-ROM, to set them into the Windows environment.

If you type <PATH>\PUTINENV.EXE /? at a CMD prompt, you receive:

PUTINENV 2.13 by MJ Winkler, Apr  7 1993, 13:32:00.                              PUTINENV is a batch file enhancer that puts or modifies variables in                              DOS' Environment.  You may then access these variables from a batch                              file.  See your DOS manual for details.                              Syntax is:  PUTINENV command \[argument(s)\] \[/U | /L | /P\] \[/M\]                                  Where:  command = the PUTINENV command (see list below).                                          argument(s) = the argument(s), if any, to the PUTINENV                                          command.                                          /U = Make returned environment strings uppercase.                                          /L = Make returned environment strings lowercase.                                          /P = Preserve case (default).                                          /M = Edit the "master environment". The Master Environment                                               is the one owned by the first command processor.                                          /O:appname = Edit another application's environment.
