Has anyone used powershell studio before? I am using it and want create a form that will allow some of our staff to move users around in active directory.  I can create the form and it works but if I want a non domain admin to run the software they cannot modify the AD. I expect this but I see there is a "run as" setting in the deployment settings.  I have tried to enter in domain admin credentials but when I run it as another user the form does not launch. It says "the directory name is invalid".  I can launch the program just fine if I am logged into the account that I entered in the "run as" settings and the form opens fine for all users if I don't enter a user in the run as settings.

Use -Verb Runas to run the PowerShell session 'Run As Administrator' from an non-elevated session
Example, the code which you want to run with elevated privileges can be placed in scriptblock ..
Start-Process Powershell.exe {
  #Your code here 
    Get-WinEvent -ListLog Security
  #Above is sample code
} -Verb Runas

Open in new window

Thank you Subsun. It appears this is the solution.  
"Launch the file from a folder that is accessible for all users and processes and you should not get that message."

I place the exe file that poweshell studio creates and put it in the root of the C drive and it worked.
