C# WMI anauthorized access exception

Last Modified: 2012-05-09
I am trying to start a process on a remote windows 2008 server using a C# code, which uses WMI. I am presenting a valid Administrator credentials in the code, but keep getting the AnauthorizedAccessExceptionUnhandled error.
I made sure that on the target server the Administrator account is authorized to impersonate client after being authenticated. I could not find any errors on the system event log (maybe there are some other log files I need to look at)
I'm attaching my program here.
