Signing in using Forms authentication gets me the virtual role administrators but not when signing in with Windows authentication


I've tried to understand why my credentials are different when using forms and windows authentication. I'm on a developer computer (localhost) and signing in with my user that is in the computer's administrators group. Forms authentication understands this and maps the virtual role Administrator to me but when signing in using windows authentication I don't get that role and the user is "local-computer\username" instead of just "username".

What differs in the logic between forms and windows authentication?
