Re: Execute program w/ cred from service


I did this with NT up to XP, too. To say: a 'real' SrvAny replacement which handles security issues properly.

Following where the steps I made:

- start the service
- impersonate any user under whose credentials the program shoul run
- insert Access allowed ACE into Winsta0 and Default
- launch the app using credentials (CreateProcessAsUser)

This worked fine in pre Vista OSses but Vista defies that.

The process will be started in session 0 and never be visible to the logged on user.

Is there -at all- a way to launch a program from a service that shows up at the glass?

Security risks are recognized and accepted!!
