never tried this but it should work:

1) change the config for the machine (to be more exact for every
virtual machine)

## Specify a specific nobody account to run jobs as. This only applies
## to instances where we normally run as nobody, and we'd like to run
## as some other user. On Windows, this user's password must be stored
## in the local password stash, or the starter will default on the
## condor-reuse-vmX account.
VM1_USER = DOMAIN\studio3d
VM2_USER = DOMAIN\studio3d


2) on the execute machine run condor_store_cred to add the users
credentials (any time this changes you will have to redo this).

In theory this will work but it means ANY job running on that machine
will be this user so make sure that this is ok (or set up a different
vm for each user you need and ensure that only certain users jobs will
run on the machine)

I've never used this myself so FWIW...YMMV...EOE...etc etc
