The UserSID property indicates the SID of the user for whom this startup command will run. That User property may be empty but UserSID still has a value if the user name can’t be resolved (like in the case of a deleted user). The property is helpful to distinguish between commands associated w/ two different users with unresolved names. It may be NULL when the command is associated with items not actually identifying a user like All Users.
