[Condor-users] FW: excel on condor

For the benefit of users who have (dis)pleasure of a system that protects
them from "malicious" attachments, I've renamed the file I was sending.
It's a .rar file, so for those of you who are listening, just rename it.

So I tried to run as work-around that I recommended and couldn't get it to
work myself.  I've attached the tcl script I wrote (you'll need a tcl
interpreter to run it) so someone can try it an see if they have more

You may be able to circumvent this problem by writing a batch file that
launches Excel using the "runas" command.  This, however, would require that
you have a common user on all the execute machines (to run as), and that you
supply a password to the "runas" command-- which has obvious security

If you have any question about the code, just ask.  I was hoping this would
be a quick temporary work-around to force the loading of user profiles, but
it doesn't seem like it will work.  I'm going to move on to adding this
capability directly into Condor.
