Run EXE as Logged-On User
by DevX Pro
Let's assume I am logged onto an NT Workstation as a normal user. Using one of your 10-Minute Solutions I managed to get the LogonUser API to log me in as the Administrator (i.e., returned True) with VB. Now I want to shell an EXE as the logged on Administrator and not myself. For example, this viruscan update, which requires Admin privileges: c:\Temp\sdat4080.exe How do I do this (I believe one solution is the CreateProcessAsUser API, but I don't know how to use it)?
