Until a recent update of the Android app, I have been using the Utility Remote 'Start - Start applications' successfully to launch programs on a Windows 7 Pro (Lenovo) machine (using both a Moto G with Android L and a Moto G5 plus with Android N). However, it seems that since the app upgrade, that particular remote no longer functions properly. The symptoms include launching the wrong programs, losing the ability to properly navigate the Windows 'Start' directory structure, losing the ability to use the app's 'Back' button in navigation, etc. Attempts to clear app cache allow navigation to be 're-activated', but still result in incorrect programs being launched, etc.
I have tried re-installing the app, stopping and restarting the server, repeatedly clearing cache and other techniques, but nothing has been able to restore the proper/expected functionality.
Thanks for your attention to this.
