    With .Net 2 SmartClient published/deployed over ClickOnce over IIS, is there
    a property like System.Security.Principal.WindowIdentity.GetCurrent().Name
    which would get me the logged on userID (without the DOMAIN\)?

    No, you have to parse it out or pass the NT name to a conversion function
    which will convert it to a different format. Parsing it out would be
    easier.
