runas \netonly in Excel 2016? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Has this capability been deprecated? We have clients who are struggling to connect to our SSAS instance as they traditionally have with Excel 2013.  Today, they successfully use;

    C:\Windows\System32\runas.exe /netonly /user:domain\username

  • Hi,

    I just tested it. It's still working. I think, this is Windows functionality, not especially excel.

    But the Path to excel.exe was changed. In my 64-Bit installtion it is now:

    C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\root\Office16\excel.exe
    in 2013 it was:
    C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office15\excel.exe

    Try to start excel in console just with excel.exe. I get the error "file excel.exe not found."
    Maybe try full path to excel:

    C:\Windows\System32\runas.exe /netonly /user:domain\username "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\root\Office16\excel.exe"
    kind regards
