Cheat Codes not activated when software run from Wii Home Menu

MD5 Hash? (right click the game in the game list, Properties, Verify tab, Verify Integrity button)
What's the problem? Describe what went wrong.
When opening the game from the Dolphin Browser, the cheat codes work as expected. However, when run from the Wii Home Menu, the Cheat Codes don't activate.
What steps will reproduce the problem?
Open the Wii Home Menu from the tools tab within Dolphin, change the disc to the game with cheats selected, and start the game from the home menu. The cheats won't be activated.
Is the issue present in the latest development version? For future reference, please also write down the version number of the latest development version.
Yes [Ver. 5.0-14005]
Is the issue present in the latest stable version?
If the issue isn't present in the latest stable version, which is the first broken version? (You can find the first broken version by bisecting. Windows users can use the tool https://forums.dolphin-emu.org/Thread-green-notice-development-thread-unofficial-dolphin-bisection-tool-for-finding-broken-builds and anyone who is building Dolphin on their own can use git bisect.)
If your issue is a graphical issue, please attach screenshots and record a three frame fifolog of the issue if possible. Screenshots showing what it is supposed to look like from either console or older builds of Dolphin will help too. For more information on how to use the fifoplayer, please check here: https://wiki.dolphin-emu.org/index.php?title=FifoPlayer
What are your PC specifications? (CPU, GPU, Operating System, more)
It's a potato (and a miracle that dolphin even runs)
Is there anything else that can help developers narrow down the issue? (e.g. logs, screenshots,
configuration files, savefiles, savestates)
Tested on multiple Wii Games, shown to be consistent
