Failure to run programs from a Samba drive

I having trouble using Samba. Everything is fine with respect to file
access. However, when running programs on NT from a Samba drive, they
fail to run properly run.
For example, when running perl I get the following:
Could not load ADVAPI32.dll
Other programs fail without explanantion. If I run the same commands
from a non-samba drive, the commands succeed. I have tried various
permutations of parameters involving case without success.
Again, file access seems to work as expected.
I am running Samba version 1.9.16p11 on HP-UX 10.01.
Other problems of lower importance are as follows:
When double-clicking files from the explorer, the files report an error.
Loading from within the app or using the send to option work.
When logging in to NT and automounting a samba drive, file access fails
when attempting to access files. If I unmount and remount, everything
is ok. This has been the case after using wins support = no and
identifying the wins server on our network. For users with the same
account names on both unix and nt this problem exists. If a user a
distinct account names, no problem exists.
