Sorry I read vbscript. Change wscript  and enter the program that runs the script.

do you have any trust relatioship with that domain, if it's completely separate entity then you won't be able to run otherwise you can right click on the file and select Run As runas

Thanks for the update. I know how to add the runas option thorugh reged but i don't have access to edit the registry on the machine. Some time back I used the command runas /user:' "C:\windows\system32\mshta.exe test.hta"" which was working. I forgot the exact command which will give the results.

I tried  this command runas /user:domain\domainadmin "c:\windows\system32\mshta.exe \"h:\test.hta\"" which is working fine.
