Just a note for the list. Condor on windows does not dynamically
create a 'condor' user. it dynamically creates a user which by default
is called condor-reuse-vmX where X goes from 1 to whatever you need.

The 'condor' account is normally used in the *nix condor world for use
by the main daemons such as the startd. The install process may create
this account (on windows they simply all run as Local System by

You could of course change the name of the dynamic user to condor but
it would probably be a bad idea.
