[Rev] Problem with seemingly simple code

Hi Dave,

I suspect the problem may be in the "sendReq" button. Send messages are 
very polite and just do nothing if they have an error instead of 
frightening your users with a cryptic message.

Try putting some "answer" statements in you scripts so you can see what 
happens but if the scripts haven't been able to compile, they may not 
get called at all. Also, try building the standalone in OS X as well as 
in Windows - there may be a problem with file paths once it is a 
separate app instead of part of the Revolution environment.
