Anyone know how to run something as the logged in user?

Recommended Posts


I'm running my script as a local admin account but at the end I need to fire up a piece under whatever ID is currently logged in. Anyone know a way to do this? a command, func, Windows cmd line, anything?

Just to clerify, I'm pretty sure any of the AutoIt macros, such as @UserName, will give me the admin account since that's what it's running as. I need the current interactive logged in user.
