Find the location of the actual programme on your computer (not the shortcut), and see if that runs
Will probably be installed in c:\program files or c:\program files (x86)
If you examine the file properties of the short-cut (alt-enter on the shortcut) it will tell you where the programme location and executable filename is.
If you use the “run” command you should just be able to type in that name and if the programme doesn’t run still – you know the problem isn’t with the shortcut.

Unfortunately, that did not work for me.
In other words, I got the same results; the shortcut shows up on the desktop, but nothing happens when I highlight it and press enter on it.
If you or any others have more suggestions, I’ll give them a try.
You are creating a shortcut to a shortcut.
Follow your steps through number 3.
Copy the shortcut, CTRL-C.
Focus on the Desktop, WINDOWS KEY-D.
Paste the shortcut, CTRL-V.
That should fix your issue.
