I have had no issues getting general file sharing set up, with Lion Server on a Mac mini and Windows 7 on Parallels Desktop on both a MBP and an iMac.

The issue I am running in to is with execute rights. I can do anything I want with a regular file, but running an install EXE or MSI fails. I dread the idea of running a VM on the MacMini just to have a copy of Windows 7 as a peer to peer machine to allow me to run installs from a remote location. But I also don't want to spend hundreds of $ on an add-on solution. It is also my understanding that 'nix doesn't enable execute by default (makes a lot of sense, really) so perhaps the answer is to enable execute just on the folders I need it on? At which point, I am out of my element, and perhaps someone can point me in the right direction, and I will hope that direction does not lead to a command line. ;)
