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,

Paper Tape

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.
