Bug in Autoruns64 with shortcuts

I'm running Windows 11 and there appears to be a bug in Autoruns64 causing it to mistakenly highlight shortcut items in the Windows user startup folder (%appdata%\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup) as issues. If the shortcut has any parameters in the Target field or anything except the executable, Autoruns64 highlights the entry and displays "File not found". For example, I have a shortcut where the Target line is "C:\Program Files (x86)\FastStone Capture\FSCapture.exe" -Silent. The file exists and the shortcut works, but since there is a parameter of "-Silent" in the Target, Autoruns64 things the executable does not exist.

Thanks,

Rich
