Thanks for the reply. One of my co-workers thought I could do
something like this:

c = wmi.WMI()
for i in c.Win32_UserAccount(Name=user):
    # Get user paths somehow.

I messed around with that, but I think he was mistaken. It has lots of
good info, but not what I need.

I apologize for not being specific. I will look at those win32net
