External Win32 Call

I have created a business function to call a external application using the
Win32 bit cmd.exe. However, I believe that I am running into a security
violation due to the following.

I am logged into Windows 2000 as user X and I am in OneWorld as the user Y.
When I call the business function, I believe that it fails due to my
OneWorld user doesn't have access to the folders in Windows.

If I am logged into Windows and OneWorld as user X, the external call works
with no problems.

Does anyone know how in C I can retrieve the current user security
information to pass into the CreateProcess API? Or does anyone know how I
can get around this problem for the ideal solution would be to call cmd.exe
as the user that is signed into Windows 2000.

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
