RunAsRob command line arguments, registry values, Group Policy options and the differences to RunAsSpc

RunAsSpc is on the market since 2005 and RunAsRob is a further development, on the market since 2012.
RunAsSpc is very popular with its option to run an application as different user. Application and user login information can pass in plain text or encrypted. RunAsSpc is portable including the file with encrypted credentials.

RunAsRob can do much more with its 4 program parts and different possibilities to run a specific program with special rights. Depend on the solution you need, each option has its advantages.

  1. The part RunAsAdmin login as administrator run an application as administrator from a standard user account with own profile of the user.
    Because the user will be a temporary member with its own account of the group administrators for the start of the authorized program, he keeps his setting in the application.
  2. The possibility RunAsAdmin login as system run an application under system account. This specific local system account with no user profile has more privileges than an administrator.
    By this option you can also bypass the UAC and you have got access to system resources you don't have with an administrator account.
  3. The part RunAsService run a program as service automatically with the highest privileges without a user must be logged on and without any user interaction.
  4. RunAsRob the part for encrypted files can call a specific application under another user account from an encrypted file and is portable.
