Is it possible to locally get the user's session ID and/or the session name (as displayed on the tooltip, so it has to be somewhere). With the session ID I could get the name serverside, so either should do.

The SessionID property is part of the Client Launch Parameters which is stored within the Registry. The default location is

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\ScreenConnect Client (xxx)\ImagePath

Where the (xxx) is your server's public key thumbprint.

The ImagePath setting contains a list of parameters, the SessionID is the s= parameter.

As far as the Session's Name, that is a little more complicated. If the Access client installer is built using a specific value for the name, then the Client Launch Parameters will contain a t parameter displaying that. If it's set to use the Machine name, then no t value is present.
