I am using Windows Server 2008 R2, 64 bit.

Is it possible for the user to run .exe file in the folder where he doesn't have read / write privileges? So - I have a folder named 'test'. I don't have read / write privileges to list contents of that folder and everything else. But, I have a shortcut on my desktop, pointing to the .exe file in that folder. Is there a way a user can run that .exe via shortcut, but in the same time he does not have permissions to look into that folder?
