To test your project WITH all of the resources available such as ask/answer
dialogs, you only have to select
"Suspend Revolution UI" from the development menu. Then your project is
running with everything it would normally have as a standalone, but the
development environment is hidden.

I agree that testing would be more developer-friendly if one could just
double-click a rev file from the desktop. This was discussed several months
ago on the list. I wonder if RunRev listened to their userbase on that
issue as they were designing v1.5 (now v2.0). I believe there was a
majority consensus that the the double-click method was more desirable than
suspending the UI from a menu. It just seems more intuitive to simply
double-click the file to me.
