Has anyone had experience starting a CAB Application from the registry run key? I am getting strange behaviour in the the Modules do not load but if executed elsewhere it is all fine.

Just a guess, but could it be the startup path being different?
if your shell.exe is located in c:\yourapp\shell.exe
Try opening a command prompt somewhere else (in another directory) and start your app using the full path, like so:
c:\documents and settings\whatever>c:\yourapp\shell.exe

See if you get the same strange behaviour then. if yes... then you should be able to track the problem further down.
