I got this figured out, fyi. I had to use the LogonUser, and CreateProcessAsUser API's to execute a program as another user. It still requires you to know the other user's domain, profile and pwd, but that was not a problem for this situation. -----Original Message----- From: pctech-bounces@xxxxxxxxxxxx [mailto:pctech-bounces@xxxxxxxxxxxx] On Behalf Of Walden H.

I have a socket server program running on a Windows 2003 server.
By "server program" do you mean it's running as a service?
Is there a way (say a DOS command or other windows command or API) that I can run from my socket server program to allow me to log on first and then run my exe file?
You could always start a windows session and run in that session, but that would be like writing remote control software -- why do it? Tell me about this .exe, does it expect to interact w/the desktop? Or is it just a batch-style program?
2. Barring that, is there a way to have Win 2003 server ignore The authority issue for a specific *.exe or API?
Hmmm, is there a way to tell OS/400 to ignore the fact that I'm not authorized to a file? <G> Seriously, there are two steps you should go through here. First, look in the security event log, if you've got failure auditing turned on (you do, don't you?) then you should see an event if this is indeed a lack-of-security issue. Then second, grant the necessary security to the right user. -Walden
