Bloody Applications

This is an interesting one. Below, you see first a screenshot of a PowerFuse shortcut that does not work and after that a shortcut that works. Working means that the application starts up without errors.

Do you see the difference? Ok, I should have avoided the active cursor in the window as it is a real spoiler... This is due to the fact that the application itself checks if it is started from the proper location to make sure a valid license is used. This check is done on the basis of the startup command and the string comparison is made case sensitive...
