runas explorer /separate

Posted: 03-05-2008, 11:27 AM
Hi,

Using WinXP I was able to run an administrative shell from an normal
user environment, through

runas /user:administrator "explorer.exe /separate"

In Vista business instead whenever that I use runas /
user:administrator "explorer.exe /separate" from user cmd, the system
return the following message:

Attempting to start explorer.exe /separate as user "NOTEBOOK
\Administrator" ...

end after ...nothing!

Using the same command without "separate" switch, I can see a new
shell but with the same credentials of the user environment.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!

This functionality has been deliberately disabled in Vista and above.
Explorer is not designed to run in multiple instances.

I wrote a tool to launch an elevated explorer instance since it is not built
in. It ships with the Windows Server 2008 Security Resource Kit:
