Member Server cannot run Executable from any shared resource in LAN

    I have a member server that cannot run a .exe file from any shared resource
    in our network when run in Windows Explorer. The error is "Windows cannot
    access the specified device, path, or file. You may not have the appropriate
    permissions to access the item." BUT when I run from a Command prompt
    (\\share$\Executable.exe), the executable runs! What am I missing?
    Additional information: The server is in another subnet, that subnet has a
    backup domain controller, the backup domain controller can run executables
    from a shared resource using windows explorer, the link between that subnet
    and the PDC is a T1 using LAN-to-LAN Cisco van, the Primary Domain
    controller is 2003 server and of course active directory, there is a backup
    domain controller in the subnet where the PDC is which is also a 2003
    server. The member server is a 2003 server, also. All of these servers
    have the latest service packs, I believe.

    I appreciate any help on this.

    Thanks in advance.
