    It's hard to tell without more details, but I don't think it has something to do with the domain/workgroup network configuration. I think it could be related to the different operating systems that the programm is running on, and the software installed on each one.

    Answering to the original question: No, I don't think that creating a domain will solve the problem. What to do ? I think it depends on the specific operations the program executes or the functions it calls. Maybe it is executing some operations that are not fully supported in some operating systems. I would recommend to perform a complete test of the application in all operating systems where it is going to run on, before moving it to production.
