Bug Description

If a Windows machine has been added to an AD domain the runas commandline required the /user parameter, that is, while the following works in a machine in a workgroup:

runas autoupdate-windows.exe

on a machine that is a domain it wont. In order to fix that the user has to pass the /user parameter as

runas /user:mandel@ad autoupdate-windows.exe

This brakes the autoupdate. A work arround is to tell users to execute the above command using their username and domain.
