Install it and follow till the end.

At the end we can choose to show readme like above.

Run cmd.exe under the local system account

Some time we need to debug a program which run using cmd.exe under system account(NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM).

We can use psexec program from sysinternals’ PsTools to achieve this.

To use it, put pstools folder on your system path and execute

psexec -i -s cmd.exe

where arguments -i if for interactive and -s is for system account
