64-Bit Binary can't run on an network share

    We have an application that we use to control our instrumentation. Usually we
    run this application directly from an network share. Since I have Vista
    64-Bit this doesn't work anymore, every DNS resolution fails even local host.
    After some clueless playing with the security settings without any result, I
    recognized that other 64-Bit Binaries have the same problem e.g. ping. If I
    copy the ping.exe from my 64-Bit machine to an share an try to ping some pc
    from there, nothing happens. The command just hangs for some seconds and
    outputs nothing. If I copy an 32-Bit ping to the share and execute it from
    the same 64-Bit Vista, everything is working fine. After compiling our
    application for x86, it work as well. Does anyone have an idea what's that?
    The behaviour seems to be too strange for an policy setting or so.
