Hi,

I have a .net exe that is launched by a very limited user.
the user does this by clicking a batch file that uses runas to run the exe using the Admin account on the box.
so the exe is running as the Admin.

However i then call another bat file using System.Diagnostics.Process from within code that basically consists of an Xcopy from a server share.
Because the exe is running as the Admin the batch files fails because you have to be a member of a group to access the share.
the logged on user is a member and can access the share but not via the exe, presumebaly because the exe is running under Admin account.
is it possible to run the xcopy batch file under the logged on user account?

cheers

Runas.exe doesn't let you specify the password on the command line.  
In .NET 2.0, Process.Start() does have an overload that allows specifying the user and password.

System.Diagnostics.Process, RunAs and hidden windows
