I can't create a tile for certain programs (example: SnippingTool.exe)

Hi, when I try to create a tile for SnippingTool, if I try to select it from the SimpleTab search option, I realized that the SnippingTool.exe file is not even listed in the window of possible programs to choose. If I go directly through Windows Explorer to where the programs is: C:\Windows\System32\SnippingTool.exe, right-click "Add a tile in SimpleTab"... it doesn't work... I can do it for other programs but not for that one... is there any particular restriction with any king of exe files?

Thanks,

This issue is because SimpleTap is a 32-bit application but some applications in the system32 folder are native 64-bit (like SnippingTool).  You can still create a tile though.  Inside SimpleTap, in the wizard to create the new tile, browse to "c:\windows\sysnative" and you should see SnippingTool.exe there.
