There is no "geteuid" in the code you posted. You will have to post the entire error message so we can tell which line it is coming from.

It's probably GetUserName() or GetUserNameEx() in the win32api module. The code in your post is very nice, but it is purely linux, and there is some work if you want to port this to windows.
