VS 2005 debug vs release built

i'm using VS 2005 / C# / WinXP pro SP2 / .NET Framework 2.0

I'm dealing with a problem I just can't figure out. I have a MDI application
with two different types on Child windows. As means of data transfer between
the Child windows I implemented a Drag And Drop like functionality. Part of
that is that the cursor changes to different icons depending of what type of
Child window it is hovering over. As long as I start the debug or release
version of my application from within VS 2005 (F5 key) everything works
perfectly as it should. Even starting the release version from the Projects
directory via double click works fine. As soon as I move the application into
a different directory or on a different computer (including all the files
from the VS release directory) the mouse pretty much does what it wants.
Sometime the cursor changes as it should. Sometimes I changes only on a few
of the open windows and sometime sI does not change at all or does not change
back to the default cursor. Is it a knows issue that there are significant
differences between running an application from inside side of VS 2005
environment and by itself besides the debug functionality? But that should
not have such an effect!!!

obvious thing that comes to mind is its not picking up the icon files.
maybe theyr not in the release directory.
but usualy they get compiled into the application.
