run as software as administrator on terminal server

Hi guys,

we are operating in a terminal server environment and few of our end users need to run an application as an administrator, we cannot give them the admin privileges. What is the best way to achieve this, we cannot use the batch file with the run as command as this would reveal the admin password.

thanks :)

I have never yet had to elevate a users permissions despite companies wanting it at times :-)

The steps I always take are to download Sysinternals Process Monitor tool (my cut and paste is borked for some reason, but www.microsoft.com/sysinternals -> process utilities)

Log onto the server as an administrator and run it up. Filter on the executable you want and choose to highlight "DENIED"

This will lead you to find the necessary files and registry keys you need to relax permissions on.

Thanks for the points but may I ask why only a grade 'C' ?
