Hello,
I'm  logged on on windows xp with standard domain user and I want to made a registry settings modification and then adding a local printer.
I need to change and perforn those admin task remotely without logoff the standard domain users
Is it possible use the cmd with run as and add local printer, open control panel , change registry settings?
Durin the remote session I have tried to lunch cmd with runas and then digit control but nothing happen and control panel is not opening. If I'm performing the same steps with the standard users that is logged on I'm able to open control panel with cmd by using the command control.
Which is the difference between the users?
Why I can't execute the same command with admin proviliges?
are there any limitation when I want to use run as during remote session ?
Thanks

If I remember this correctly:

First Log off from the standard user account and login with the Admin account.
Open Windows Explorer--Tools--Folder Options--View--Select 'Launch Folder...in a separate process'

Log back in with the standard user and try the run as option.
