what u mean: "lunch exe program from SAMBA server" ? the program resides on a connected network drive?
if so you only need to call CreateProcess(...).

CString pathName;
pathName = YourProgramPath;
STARTUPINFO startup;   //structure containing information on how to start the program
PROCESS_INFORMATION procinfo;   //this will receive information on the newly created process

::ZeroMemory(&startup, sizeof(startup));  //clear startup structure

startup.cb = sizeof(startup);   //size of this structure
startup.dwFlags = STARTF_USESHOWWINDOW;    //use wShowWindow flag
startup.wShowWindow = SW_SHOW;    //show the window in normal state
pathName = "\"" + pathName + "\"";     //include the pathname into quotation marks to deal with spaces in pathnames

LPSTR cmd = ClientCmd.GetBuffer(ClientCmd.GetLength() + 1);
if (CreateProcess(NULL, //name of application already contained in lpCommandLine parameter
                         cmd,   //lpCommandLine = full / relative path of program + parameters
                         NULL,  // }
                         NULL,  // } no security attributes for thread as well as process
                     false,  //the new process should not inherit any handles from the calling process
                         0,       //we specify no creation flags
                         NULL,  //new process runs in same environment as calling process
                         NULL,  //the current drive+directory of the new process will be the same like the one of the calling process
                         &startup,  //our startup information
                         &procinfo)   //this will receive information on the new process
                         == 0) {   //return value 0 means error:
// add an error handler here if execution failed
}

have a look for CreateProcess function in MSDN for more info.
