[Samba] Problems with permissions

I have a Debian Wheezy machine with a standard samba configured as domain 
controller. (security = user)

On the Windows clients a programm shall be installed that needs full access to 
all files on a network drive

I have set the Unix permissions to 777 for all files and subdirectories of the 
according directory.

The share entry is:

	path = /home/shareddirectory
	admin users = user1, root
	force group = users
	read only = No
	create mask = 0777
	directory mask = 0777

On the Windows clients however in Properties -> Security I see only special 
rights which lack full access and delete.

How can I get full access to all files and subdirectories.

Any hints for what I configured wrong are wellcome.
