IME does not work for programs run as a different user (Windows 7 x64) RRS feed

  • Question

  • Running programs under a different user context ("run as") it is not possible to change the input locale for that specific program.

    This means that as long as such a program has the focus the language bar AKA IME is turned off or at least becomes invisible and inaccessible with both: mouse and keyboard shortcut ALT-Shift. Giving the focus back to a program, which runs under the current user context, IME is turned on again.

    I tried this under Japanese and under a German language version of Windows 7 (x64, Home & Ultimate) with the same result. Is there any way around this problem or is this just a bug. If the latter is the case, is there any way to report this problem to Microsoft or do I just have to wait until someone at Microsoft stumbles across this problem?

    Can anyone here confirm this problem?
