Wally Mead gave a great presentation on the free Cireson Remote Manage app and the next version of Configuration Manager. If you missed the presentation or would just like to review the content, his PowerPoint slides can be downloaded from http://1drv.ms/1FXFn8U.
During the Q&A and feedback for the Remote Manage app, a couple of us stressed the need to be able to run the tool with alternate credentials (such as an admin account). It was found that the shortcut created by the initial setup doesn’t allow to run as a different user. So if you need this ability, then create a new shortcut straight from the .exe, which does allow this functionality.
