JSI Tip 5691. Using the RunAs utility when the 'program' is on a mapped drive generates an error?

In tip 2548 ยป The Windows 2000 Runas utility, I described various uses of the RunAs utility.

If the 'program' that you are trying to run is on a mapped drive, you may receive an error if the RunAs User does not have matching credentials on the mapped drive.

To workaround this feature, use the UNC path to the program.
