I have this app run from the currently logged on user
(standard start double click from desktop)

In this windows app i want to create a thread using a diffent user.
This user obviously has more priviliges than the user starting the app.

This app is a tool to read from AD and perform changes in AD.
The secondary user would be used to do this.

I could off course start the app from the secondary user,
but i don't want to do this.

Any code examples in Delphi ?

use ImpersonateLoggedOnUser

  if LogonUser(user, domain or empty string , pass, LOGON32_LOGON_INTERACTIVE, LOGON32_PROVIDER_DEFAULT, h) then
  try
    if ImpersonateLoggedOnUser(h) then
    try
      do whatever as user
    finally
      if not RevertToSelf then// either this, or exit the thread
        showmessage(syserrormessage(getlasterror));
    end
    else
      showmessage(syserrormessage(getlasterror));
  finally
    closehandle(h);        
  end;
