Samba - "The location cannot be displayed with this viewer."

I've configured Fedora as a Samba client, and I'm trying to read documents and view pictures that are located on the server but I get the following error:

The location cannot be displayed with this viewer.

Does this mean Samba client isn't configured correctly?

Ye this could mean the viewer (application) you are using to view the documents is not capable of opening them.
