    I have a stand alone PC running Vista (not joined to a domain), but
    when I am in one an office that uses a domain, I need to run some
    applications as a user on that domain.

    Is it true that if your computer has not been joined to the domain,
    there is no way to run an application as a user on that domain, even
    if you can supply the credentials for that user?

    That is correct because the user only exists as a domain user. If you
    need to do this often, perhaps you could have the office's IT Dept. make
    you a user account on their server. You don't have to join the domain to
    use server resources.
