How can we improve Configuration Manager?

Allow "Applications" to run under alternate account other than "SYSTEM"

Allow "Applications" to run under alternate account other than "SYSTEM". Some applications will not run under a s SYSTEM account and have to run with a domain account. It is only possible when using a task sequence to accomplish this now and it can only be done with packages.

    I've added my votes to this one in favor of consolidating the idea I created when I didn't find this one....Here is the text of the idea I had posted (since it will probably be deleted now that I removed my votes):

    Add "Run As" to Applications

    Similar to the Task Sequence "Run this step as the following account". Please add this to application installations as well. We have some "difficult to package" applications that require a user profile in order to install successfully. These applications fail to install as an application because when running as the system there is no user profile path. As a result, we have to resort to task sequences to install these which results in a worse end user experience.
