Hello Robert,

Both the answer and ask dialog are part of the Revolution UI, which is 
not started up when you doubleclick a project with rev not open. So the 
dialogs don't appear and the contents of 'it' are not filled in by the 
dialog. I am puzzled why you get the result you get instead of 
literally "it".

Solution: start Rev first or make a standalone. I don't think there is 
an other solution.
