Whenever I try to start an EXE stored on a SAMBA share on a Windows XP I
'Windows cannot access the specified path, directory or file - You may
not have the appropriate permissions to access the item'
Running pure DOS programs from the share works fine.For all other
actions (copy, delete etc.) I have full control on this share.Also the
securite option of the respective EXE-file show all permissions
enabled.SAMBA logging (even with high log level) gave me no hint (but I
have to admit that I am an SMB newbie).
My environment:
.  SUSE Linux 8.2 Professional Edition
.  SAMBA 2.2.7a-58-i586
.  Windows XP Professional SP1
.  SMB.CONF : see attached
Many thanks
