For some reason I'm getting Access denied errors when I try to execute a
.bat file that resides on a samba share (from a Win95 command prompt). The
drive is mapped as x:\ & for the sake of testing, the directory has been
recursively set to 777 (chmod).
Command prompt output:
Access denied - x:\r235\src\ntprpst\sharc\mta\src\build~XM.bat
No file of directory - x:\r235\src\ntprpst\sharc\mta\src\no_such_file.bat
Normally, I would assume this is some 8.3 filename quirk, but what's odd is
where that ~xm.bat comes from. Why no ~1.bat, like standard Win9x format?
I was able to move the r235 directory over to the localhard drive with no
problem. And the Access denied went away when I re-executed the batch file.
