We are using Windows Messaging to invoke action on the server, the messaging service needs to be run under SYSTEM, so any application it runs is run under SYSTEM which is not aware of network connections or running instances of a program.  So we would like to run an Application that starts another application under the current logged in user instead of SYSTEM
