Windows 7 64bit
Run a separate instance of explorer


Work for local gov and in XP run explorer as separate so we can run it with our admin account. However, we are currently migrating to a new domain. Seems to be no trust relationship at moment with the new and old domain.

So one of the engineers is running Windows 7 and has been migrated to the new domain. Wants to get to some of the network drives that are on the old domain. Can't at moment it appears. So we were going to try running explorer as a separate instance, using his admin account that is on the old domain. However, it would appear, it's not possible to runas explorer as separate on Windows 7 anymore.

Why this feature was removed is anyones guess.

Anyone have a work around?
