Issues with K1000 Machine Action - Version: 6.3.113398


After installing the hotfix for the new version: 6.3.113398 one of our action buttons stopped working.

The button to access the c$ admin share on a remote computer only open the explorer on the local Computer.

Syntax: explorer.exe \\KACE_HOST_NAME\c$

Copy it to cmd works fine.

Does anyone have the same problem and maybe a solution or Workaround.
