App-V 5: Run As Different User

Ever tried to run an App-V 5 app as another user, say your elevated account, and got a whole lot of nothing? Maybe at most you got a 1530 event log entry in Applications?

Hit start, type powershell, right click on "PowerShell" and select "Run As Different User", enter the credentials of the account you are trying to use.

Once powershell comes up type the following:

Sync-AppvPublishingServer 1

This will sync that user accounts App-V package store and you should now be able to Run As... to your hearts content.
