Packaged games do not display PlayerName correctly using Steam OSS. Does not occur in Standalone.

Test project attached. To test, package for Development > Win64. When run (with the Steam client open, or opened from the Steam client), the game will show the computer name rather than Steam name. In a Shipping build, the game will display "Player" instead (which is probably related to [Link Removed] ).

Reproduced in 4.10.1 and Main (CL# 2813452). Does NOT occur in 4.9.2; this is a regression.

Steps to Reproduce

1. Open a new blank project
2. Add the OSS information to the project's DefaultEngine.ini file:
3. Create a new Widget Blueprint
4. Add a Text block
5. Create Binding for the Text
6. Add the following to the resulting function:

7. Create and Add to Viewport from the Level BP
8. Package for Shipping > Win 64
9. Run game from the Steam client

"Player" is displayed

The Steam user's name is displayed
