Hi experts,

I running a VB6 program that is doing some query and create a schedule task on remote machine. It works fine when I'm logged on my domain account which gives me administrator rights on all workstation. But if I try to run that program on a none domain account(user/computer), it doesn't work. I tried mapping a drive before but it gives only access to some queries but can't create the task.

Is it possible to specify a username for a connexion?

Thank you

This is a very great code but it doesn't do what I'm looking for.
To clarify the situation.
I'm running the VB6 applcation on a computer in montreal. This computer is not on the domain or is on another domain. That application is used t create a schedule task on a computer in vancouver. So I enter the vancouver computer name in the VBapp and the task parameter a of strat date and time, command line and the domain user accont and password to use to execute the task etc...

If I run the program on a computer in montreal on the same domain and with a user account that has admin right, it work great. The task is created on the vancouver pc and execute correctly. But if I run the program on a none domain computer or using a none admin account, it doesn't work.

What I would like to do is use the user account and password that I can specify in the VB app to autenticate and create the task on the remote machine.

I hope it is more clear now..

Thank you
