I have never seen an application icon use the /p switch for "<<Unnamed Profile>>" which is (as I understand it) a backup of the default profile. However, it does show up in the list of available profiles. I have only ever seen named profiles being used with the /p switch. Perhaps there is a behavioral difference... I am really unsure.
I am no expert at .NET, nor ObjectARX development, but I do not understand how one would go about firing an Event Monitor's callback prior to AutoCAD being initialized, and/or your Assembly (and subsequent methods, properties, fields, etc.) being instantiated. This seems counter intuitive to me, as this entirely (if even possible) bypasses the built-in system(s) for handling this behavior (i.e., the /p switch for example).
I can only imagine the amount of (perhaps non-billable) time you've spent/wasted on this, all as a result of your client not understanding that using the /p switch is a simple, and best practice for safeguarding their own production needs, never mind that of the software they're paying to add-on.
Separately, and also worthy of consideration, more on the startup sequence:
