Stev,

What are you typing in the "User Name" field?

For example, if the user name is illusion, then you would type either below. Just substitute Domain with the actual name of the domain computer (ex: SEV-PC).

illusion@Domain

OR

Domain\illusion

Hello,

I have a question : Suppose my computer is on Domain D1. There is also another domain D2 which i used to connect through VPN. Now after connecting VPN, i am following below steps :

1. I am trying to execute a Application by Run as User (Shift+Right Mouse button).
2. I am entering D2\Username & password.

I am getting error "Logon failure : Unknown User name or bad password".

However using same credentials (D2\username & password), i can successfully RDP the machine on domain D2. Moreover this account is member of Admin group on D2 domain.

Can you please suggest?

Hello anujagrawal, and welcome to Seven Forums.

You might see if you may be able to log in using username@D2, then the password may work instead.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Hello Sakina,

I have no idea if this will work, but you might try this instead with one more set of quotes wrapped around the whole thing.

Code:
""C:\Program Files (x86)\Gameforge\NCLauncher\NCLauncher.exe" /LauncherID:"GameForge" /CompanyID:"11" /GameID:"AION-LIVE" /LUpdateAddr:"update.aion.gfsrv.net""
Hope this helps,

It doesn't works. Normaly
Code:
runas /user:games "C:\Program Files (x86)\Gameforge\NCLauncher\NCLauncher.exe  /LauncherID:"GameForge" /CompanyID:"11" /GameID:"AION-LIVE"  /LUpdateAddr:"update.aion.gfsrv.net""
should work, if there was no stupid quotation marks in the parameters

Hello avinashrawat,

Unfortunately, the user account you want to "run as" must have a password to be able to use it.
