Ranorex 6.1.1 is VERY old and no longer supported. Please update to a supported version (even the demo version) and try again. Currently 7.1.2 and 7.2.0 are supported. If that works, then you know the issue has been fixed and you need to upgrade. If not, then there are any number of other things it could be.

There have been several updates the the APK tools since 6.1.1.
Shortcuts usually aren't...
