Running code using another user context

Good Evening,

I Would like to know if is it possible to execute some code with another
user's context, of course, typing its username and password. I lnow its
possible in Visual Basic 6, but I would like to know how its possible in C#
or VB.net

Thanks a lot,

Check out the documentation on the static Impersonate method on the
WindowsIdentity class. It will have an example of how to logon using
another's credentials, and then run code under that user context.

Hope this helps.

I posted this a short while ago , but I don't think I explained the problem clearly. Task Manager lists processes running on a local system, including a "user name" associated with each process (e.g. SYSTEM). My application needs to check if a particular process is running, and if so get the associated "owner". I am really trying to determine the security context in which the process was started. Thanks for any input. -- Moses
