C:\Users%USERPROFILE%\Desktop\Browsers\PROD_Mozilla Firefox?


You need to create a credentials object with the proper ones in it, and then run the app you want with it like this:

$username = "username"
$password = "password"
$credentials = New-Object System.Management.Automation.PSCredential -ArgumentList @($username,(ConvertTo-SecureString -String $password -AsPlainText -Force))

Start-Process filefullpath.exe -WorkingDirectory path_here -Credential ($credentials)
