Raspberry Pi Desktop Shortcut issue

I'm trying to run a GuiZero app on my rPi 4. Running from Thonny is fine, as is running the dot py file itself after giving it the correct attributes. However, running from a desktop shortcut is not so good.

This program doesn't run in terminal, instead uses GuiZero to create a window and widgets. All I see is the main window flash for a second, no widgets painted, when the window disappears. The cursor changes to add an hourglass for 10-15 seconds till the hourglass too goes away. The cursor is active during this period.

Any ideas to check?
