Windows 7: MSCONFIG not starting 1 App after 'Clean boot'

MSCONFIG not starting 1 App after 'Clean boot'

I modified MSCONFIG to do a clean boot while debugging an issue, but when I re-enabled Apps in startup 1 is not starting up now. It worked fine before i disabled it.

It is 'Elan Smart-Pad' - the touch-pad controller. I've check the registry & file path - the path is correct & it is in the registry where it should be... (HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run)

I've added a shortcut for the executable to the Startup folder so it launches as it should now, but I'm curious as to why it stopped launching from the registry.

any ideas? Thanks
