Then I think that's the filename you need to use. I assume
"Starting lilypond-windows…" means you're running on a windows box.

Samba implements SMB on unix, yes, but programs on windows should
use their own filename syntax to reference the files transparently.

In linux, you'd typically see something like //192.168.0.13/Public
if you were mounting a share as a client. Similarly you could only
hand a filename like //192.168.0.13/Public/test.ly to a client that
already knew what protocol to use, like smbclient.

So try using the filename you wanted to specify, rather than
second guessing the way the system deals with it. I'd be interested
