Cool, you seem to be on the right track. Do you also have some 
screenshots with some shares?

Beware, nitpicks ahead:

* I like that the share fields have clear groups
* "Special flags" doesn't appear to be aligned the same as "Share Type"
* Displaying the password is probably not a good idea; the password 
field is also rarely used these days. Perhaps just show "Share password 
enabled" if there is a password?

  * The server details seem to have a lot of unused space between the fields
  * The data is displayed in a very sparse way. E.g. I would expect a 
"Version: 5.2 " field rather than separate fields for major and minor 
  * If max users is set to -1 (as is the case here), I think the field 
should be hidden
  * SV_TYPE_CLUSTER_VS_NT/PLATFORM_ID_NT are the internal constants; 
users are unlikely to make much sense of them; it would be nice if the 
tool displayed a user-friendly description instead ("Windows XP", 
"Windows Vista Business", etc).
  * I'm not sure what Announce/anndelta is; is it worth displaying?
