Issues with opening .lnk to MS Office apps (word, excel, powerpoint, ...)

    I am running Windows 8.1 and tried launchy 2.6 beta as well as 2.5. The .lnk files are in C:\Users\Thorsten\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Productivity\Microsoft Office 2013

    when clicking on the links the apps open accordingly. when using the start menu (WIN and start typing Word, then enter) the apps open accordingly. When I use Launchy the apps try to start and then give an error message: "We're sorry, but Word has run into an error that is preventing it from working correctly. Word will need to be closed as a result. Would you like us to repair now?"

    Any clue what to do?
