I'm not sure if this is a samba problem or just a problem with the app. 
I'm unable to an application from a shared drive "\\ucd01\protel\". I've mapped the network drive "k:\protel\"and the apps ini file points to it but gives me an error message suggesting it can't see the drive. XP can however and I can browse it in explorer. 
A strange thing is that when I do a "run" and type k:\protel\ucd_live (where the app files are) XP cannot find it...however when I run k:\ucd_live it brings it up in explorer. 
Anyway heres the share in smb.conf

comment =  Protel Data Folder
path = /protel
read only = No 
browseable = Yes
