if in the terminal window the prompt is

[Macintosh:~] henk%

then entering

sudo open /Applications/NeoOffice.app

after the space after % should do it, shouldn't it?

Close, but not quite since what the original poster is trying to do is sudo from root to the henk user. Using your syntax, the original poster should try to following:

Code:
sudo -H -u henk open /Applications/NeoOffice.app

OK Pat. I think I follow you. 2 things:

In the previous comand before yours, it would ask for your admin or root password I think and then do it after you type in that. You and others have said he could everything he wants from his admin account (henk) using sudo so I assumed he would just be working from his account and no longer have to work form the root account. His error message seemd to be asking to go to a path other than in the account he was in.

Henk, are you still around? and did you try to run things from the henk account using sudo in the command line of the terminal window yet? or are you running as root still as you wanted to (but not recommended) with any success? Curious.
