OrphanwareThis software is no longer being developed or maintained. I have upgraded to Windows 2000 so I can't use RunIEAs. If you would like to take over project development, please let me know.
Ok, you want to let other people run Internet Explorer on your computer but you want to let them have their own favorites, home page, etc. Microsoft's solution? Save what you're doing...log off current user...wait...log on as other user...wait...run IE...Done! My solution? RunIEAs <other user>...Done!
RunIEAs gives Internet Explorer the power of personalized user profiles, similar to Netscape and Opera. It works by modifying a few registry settings to mimic another user while running IE then restores the original settings when IE shuts down.
This program will only work on MS Windows 95/98/ME based systems, not NT/2000/XP (because of security issues). But users of NT/2000/XP can use the command runas anyway, so that's not really a concern. This program is not for novices...you should at least understand what the system registry is if you want to use this program. You may also want to have a look at the source code (included) to see how it works.
