I'm using the startasuser.exe tool to run commands on remote machines in logged on user context. It looks like this tool depends on explorer.exe process to start the given application in user context. If there are more than one explorer.exe running with different users startasuser.exe is still able to run commands in logged on user context remotely. When I kill the explorer.exe and try to open a application (notepad) remotely, its not working. I'm not able to remotely start explorer.exe as well. Can someone explain how exactly startasuser.exe tools works here?
I already raised it in etc -> customer support, not sure which is right place for discussing this..
