The problem is a bit hard to explain for me, so I start with an example:

I have a shortcut pointing to the 'System Protection' tab under 'System Properties' on Win7 64bit: '%SystemRoot%\System32\SystemPropertiesProtection.exe'. If I start that shortcut from Windows Explorer, the right dialog pops up. But if I start the same link from FARR, only the 'Computer Name' tab pops up (with some other tabs strangely missing).

I tried the different options under 'Options for Launching Programs and Documents', but to no avail. At first I suspected a problem with the admin rights, but as I am logged on as admin anyway and I can edit the Network ID and computer name in the 'Computer Name' tab, I don't think that's the cause.

Can some please confirm this behavior?

i can't confirm this specific example but i can confirm the general issue of launching shortcuts on x64 OS that point to the system32 directory is a known issue and on my todo list to fix.
