Open Local System session for debug

Hi guys,
a couple of years ago, I found a tip that permitted to use in windows an system user desktop like a local system, or network service or other system users.

It allowed to login and interact with desktop and in this way to debug application services running with a system user.

I missed the example, someone can tell me how to do?

Thanks

Question is not clear to me :-
1. Do you want to debug your running machine ,i.e Windows operating system to run in debug mode  ?

2. Do you want to debug an application which is running in network ?

3. You simply want to take remote session for debugging ?

4. Which tool you will be using for debugging ?

if you can give a little bit more clarity on the requirement , may be we can provide you most efficient method to perform it.

I have to discover why my windows service application doesn't work in production enviroment.
It seems that is not able to find or load a dlls but I configured everithing well.
I want try to use a system account, like local system, and verify if the user profile is correct and the dlls are accesible.

Are you sure its Windows service application causing the issue ?
It may be the dependent services along with it or supporting files which is already configured on test environment but not on production environment.

In such scenario "Dependency Walker" may be a good tool , else a comparison between working and not working "Procmon" log can give you good and best idea.
