Mike, thanks! That spotted indeed some issues with one specific file:
SHLWAPI.DLL, now let's see what is the issue. The report from Dependency
 Walker:"Warning: At least one module has an unresolved import due to a
missing export function in a delay-load dependent module." is not
telling me much at this moment. The FAQ from Dependency Walker sais this
  is not a major issue, but apparently on Vista it is ?!?

Does anyone have a clue what I am to do about this?

Interestingly On WinXP it flags DWMAPI.DLL as missing. I did not spot
that on the Vista box.
