Automatically run an application as another user
Posted on 2010-01-08
Specific users need to run a particular application. However, the user can only be a "User" on the local workstation. This application that needs to be run needs to run with an account that has "Administrator" privledges on the local workstation. The "Run As" feature works, but we would like to not have the user know the administrator account. Is there a way to automatically have an application (or shortcut, whatever) run with a specific account so that users do not need to know the account info? So that when the User clicks the icon, it automatically runs with a Administrator (or different) account?
