Problem with Run As User and other shells

    Run as User in Console 2 is great, although I cannot get it to run anything other than CMD and even then without any arguments or startup script.

    When anything is typed into the tab's Shell field (even %COMSPEC%, it does not work, so I cannot even use %COMSPEC% /t:0F.

    Ideally, I would like to be able to run TCC/LE using Run as User, with %MYPATH%\tcc.exe /t:0F. And how about PowerShell?

    Does anybody else have this problem, or am I doing something wrong?

    I have submitted this as a bug, although it may be an expected limitation of Console2.

    I've run tcc/le in console2 for years with no problem.  However, you don't use COMSPEC to configure console2.
    Rather, open Edit:Console:Shell and point it to tccle.exe, and it will work fine!!

    @gorlash:  I am talking about Run As User, to run a tab as a domain administrator account.  Run As User does not seem to work when I have anything typed into the Shell field.

    Are you saying that you are able to run TCC/LE with the Run As User option, or have you failed to understand the issue here?

    Ahhh… no, I missed that point, sorry.  Can't help with that.

    Why not add a check for '%' chars then error as invalid, with explanation?

    This would avoid confusion.

    By itself % is not an error (maybe I actually want to pass "%something%" as the command line arg.

    I'm thinking to add a Test button to the tab configuration, so, at least, the Console doesn't crash on the next startup. I might also add some explanations on how to set up the shell and startup dir, and what Run as... does for living.
