The user does not need to have the development environment open. Your 
app will still open stacks which it references.

For this, and also on using data stacks, look under Help for Revolution 
Documentation then in the Road Map choose Development Guide, then Files 
Folders and Resources, and there you will find considerable guidance on 
the issues about which you ask. By offering you this tour, I hope also 
to familiarise you more with the documentation itself, which will 
assist you in the future.

Regardless, please come back to me if the reference I gave you is not 
clear enough, or any time you have a question on any topic.
