This issue is specific to terminal server only. I have 2 applications (both COM exe's) 1 implemented as singleton and launches as administrator everytime correctly. The application 1 launches second application using CLSCTX_LOCAL_SERVER. The issue is that the application 2 is launched as the first user(User2) who launched the application 1. Example : there are 3 users (User1 (administrator), User2, User3). I launch app1 from User2 which launches app correctly but second time when i try to launch from user3 the app2 still launches as User1 instead of User2.
