# startasuser.exe and windows 7

Is there a trick to get startasuser.exe to work with Windows 7. We have locked the machines down for the standard user and we are using Landesk 9.0. I'm working on a software deployment for an Autodesk Product and I need to do a few reg hacks in a batch file. We are running the software distrubution package as local system account.  This works great on Windows xp but it's not working on Windows 7.

Here is the batch file command line

"C:\Program Files (x86)\LANDesk\LDClient\startasuser.exe" regedit.exe /s "C:\temp\MEP(Global).arg"

Any help..

Startasuser.exe does not work Windows 7.. We found out that you have to create two different distribution packages. The first package to install the software needs to done under the local system account and the second package to do the reg hacks have to be done under current user.
