SESSIONID.EXE – Query Terminalserver Session ID


I was looking for a way to display the session-ID of my current terminal server session regardless of the protocol I’m using in a batch file. I tried numerous workarounds by parsing the output of qwinsta.exe or quser.exe – but both ways didn’t work in a reliable manner.

After some research, I figured out that the session ID is available as a property within the .NET Framework. Therefore, I decided to write a small executable that will output the session id.


Attached to this post you’ll find the SESSIONID.EXE – feel free to use it within your project.

Here are some code snippets how to use the sessionid.exe:

FOR /F "tokens=*" %%A IN ('sessionid.exe') DO SET SESSIONID=%%A
