Here is my situation: I have a single software that demands admin rights. That software needs to be run by commom users. Right-clicking and "Run as administrator" does not do the trick, therefore I used the
runas application in order to run such software as another account that has admin rights, but logged as a common user. So the commom user will execute a
.bat like this:
C:\Windows\System32\runas.exe /profile /user:admin_user /savecred "path_to_software"
The problem is, since I'm running the software as
admin_user, I'm also inside his context. For example, when I try to save a file from inside that software, the "Save as" dialog will by default, open
admin_user's folders, and not current user's folders. This also happens for the default printers and so on. Every aspect of the software that interacts with Windows, will be inside
What I need, is to run the software as
admin_user (or with admin rights), but inside the context of the logged (current) user, so that when I open "Save as" dialog, for example, I get the current user folders, not
admin_user folders. Is that even possible?
