The startasuser.exe application will launch the supplied command line in the context of the user currently logged onto the system. It does not run as the local system account, and there are no elevated privleges. So if the app you are running needs elevated privilages it will fail if the user does not have local admin privs.
So this tool is useless in a locked down environment. ACT! 2007 and 2008 has to have Full Permissions to the system and will not install as the system. Does Landesk have plans to figure out using this on locked down systems? Just a question that they might want to look into.
Thanks for the quick response.

So if you are using a domain account that also has local admin privileges then you will be set. Request this feature as an ER, I have!!!! 8.8 has two options (runas system account, and user context) I would also like to have a third - supplied credentials. Here is the[link|m-3242]
