Two possible options:

1) It may not be a local vs domain user issue. It may be an administrator vs
non administrator issus.
Can you add the domain user to the local administrators group?

2) It may be the file permissions-  samba doesn't always translate the unix
acl's to windows properly. If you can run quicken with the data on the XP
machines local hard drive than this is the case.   What is the Samba PDC OS
and File system?   I found Solaris 10 ZFS was especially tricky.  If you
right click on a network directory or file, and check the permissions do you
get an warning about permissions being incorrectly ordered?  Can you check
effective permissions to see if a "deny group" is overriding an "allow

Subject: [Samba] Application will not run for domain user

I have set up a Samba PDC using the Amahi.org distro, so there might be 
some things they still have a bit off...

Anyway, I have a somewhat old program, Quicken 2000.

On my old Win2K workstation on an old NT server, it ran just fine for 
domain users.  The software is installed on the workstation, and the 
data is on the server.

But on my new XP Pro workstation on my new Samba PDC, it only runs for a 
local user, and that user is a super user (I have not created a regular 
user on the system yet).  It will not run for the domain user.

I reinstalled the software while logged on as the domain user.  I got 
prompted to supply a user with admin privs for the install, which I 
did.  I still cannot run the program from the domain user.

Where do I look to fix this?
