error in autoruns with entry properties ... sysnative ?

Hello, and thanks in advance for any insight or workarounds for this behavior:
When I try to view an entry's properties from within autoruns,
if that entry has a path that shows as "c:\windows\system32..."
I get an error pop-up that reads :
c:\windows\sysnative\XXX
Windows cannot find 'c:\windows\sysnative\XXX'. Make sure you typed the name
correctly, and then try again. OK
(with XXX in place of whatever the actual name of the file is)

The "jump to image" option in autoruns DOES work correctly,
and I'm able to view the entry's properties fine from the right-click menu in file explorer.
It appears that "system32" is being replaced by "sysnative" in the path that autoruns looks for said entry.
Any ideas what is going on here or how i can fix it?
I am running win10 20H2 32bit and autoruns version 13.98
