My machine is a 'server workstation' running Windows Server 2003 connected to a domain. I have created a local user called StandardUser.
I'm trying to run Internet Explorer 8 as this user by right-clicking on iexplore.exe in Windows Explorer but nothing happens. No processes containing the user's name appear in Task Manager (and it is set to show processes from all users). I've also checked that the Secondary Logon service is running although I'm not sure if there are any others required.
At the command line I've tried:
runas.exe /u:StandardUser "C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe"
Attempting to start C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe as user "COMPUTERNAME\StandardUser" ...
but then the command prompt just returns and still nothing.
Update: Yes I am being asked for a password. Also I am running as local administrator on the machine because I'm a developer and need to run as local admin for Visual Studio, plus that's the way my company set the machine up.
