The only explanation I can come up with for this is that arrays do NOT get stored properly is stacks or substacks. Normal values I can retrieve for sure, because I store the current unique ID's of table records like custid, siteid, deviceid etc. in properties so that I can retrieve  them later when inserting/updating into the SQL database. That works in the IDE AND Standalones.

I can’t give you any solid leads here but I think the idea that custom property sets don’t work in a standalone is a red herring. I’d start by finding the bit of code that sets the custom property set and wrap the whole handler in a try/catch structure and throw up an answer dialog with any error. Debugging standalones isn’t that much fun at the moment (we have a remote debugger in the works).
