Well, one way you could do it is to map a network drive to the share (the resources access) as the domain user who does have rights.

Meaning, in the map network drive setup there is an option to map the drive as a different user, you can use domainname\username and their domain password.

This will access the server as that user. Now, it may be that the program needs those rights in its run mode.

If you cannot join them to the domain, you may try using "control userpasswords2" to change their username and display name to be the same as the ones on your domain. Pass through authentication would then work, and you might have luck.

If the computer is not part of the domain then no. Even if with that program you were to have it setup as a service and tried adding a domain admin to that service you couldn't because that local computer is not part of that domain.

OK. So it is trying to access a remote database on the server?

I may be wrong, but you might try my example on a test machine.

For example, I have users who access Outlook on a domain with passthrough authentication because they're on XP home. Outlook does not prompt for password, and users have access to the resources on the server (for files), because the usernames and passwords match.
