On Win7 clients, an error occurs when importing registry entries from .reg files kept in a read-only SMB share.
Server OS : LFS running kernel-18.104.22.168 with binutils-2.21, gcc-4.4.5,
Samba version 3.5.11
1. unpacked the distribution file samba-3.5.11.tar.gz
2. cd samba-3.5.11/source3
3. sh ./configure --prefix=/10/samba-3.5.11 --datarootdir=/10/samba-3.5.11 \

5. make install
6. ln -s samba-3.5.11 /10/samba
7. added /10/samba/lib to /etc/ld.so.conf and run ldconfig
8. created /10/samba/lib/smb.conf (see attachment below)
9. /10/samba/sbin/nmbd -D
10. created users :
/10/samba/bin/smbpasswd -a root
/10/samba/bin/smbpasswd -a -n nobody
/10/samba/bin/smbpasswd -a user0
11. created directory /Software and uploaded file SMB_test.reg (see attachment
12. from a Win7 computer :
> net use X: \\x009\Software /user:WORKGROUP\user0

Can you attach a debug level 10 log for the Win7 session to the Samba server including the error please ? The current log you posted doesn't have enough information to allow me to determine what is wrong.
The attachment 6887 [details] above was already a level 10 log.
Now I attach a level 100 log.

I've just found some relevant pages on Microsoft support :
It appears that this "bug" belongs properly to Win7, not Samba.
I think that this case could be closed. I'm sorry for all the troubles caused.
