Obviously it will not work as one is made on the linux basis and you are trying to run it on the window platform. Here both are quite different from each other and not compatible at all.
As noted on this very old thread it is likely a simple naming issue. The OS is of no consequence. CIFS/SAMBA in the windows/linux environment can have issues but works just fine for the most part. I have PCs running XP, Vista, and Windows7 as well as a Mac laptop on OSX, two IOS devices, an Android device, a Linux Server and even the occasional old Sun Sparc 20 and IPX box. None have issues working with NL.
Your argument is invalid.
