Another runasset & comspec question

4 posts in this topic

My company has many offices but all have the same server share names.

Every user has a Q: drive mapped to the same share name but on their local server such as:

Office 1: Q: \\UDANorth\CAD

Office 2: Q: \\UDASouth\CAD

I want to run a custom program (under a different user account) such as:

Q:\PFM-Apps\ProjectEditor.exe

So here's I've tried but it can't find the path:

;Retrieve share name of user's local share so I don't have to worry about Q being mapped.

$Qdrv = String(DriveMapGet ( "q:" ))

; Set the RunAs parameters to use local adminstrator account

RunAsSet("adfpfm", "ADF", "Ducati4")

; Run ProjectEditor as adfpfm user.

RunWait(@ComSpec & " /c " & $Qdrv & "\PFM-Apps\ProjectEditor.exe")

; Reset user's permissions

RunAsSet()

The problem was that RunAsSet required a working folder such as "C:\".

That's okay. The big problem now is that the RunAsSet user needs to have three drives mapped in his account. I'm trying this as an alternative to impersonating a user in VB6 as it seems to not be reliable.
