For anyone whose interested here's the script...  This is placed in the
plug-in's stack script.

on preOpenStack
  if the environment is "Development" then
    -- person using a licensed version of Rev => plug-in opens
    -- person using the starterkit version of Rev => plug-in quits
    answer error "Sorry, this plug-in only works with licensed versions of
Revolution software. Please remove the plug-in from the Revolution plug-ins
folder and restart Revolution. If you would like to use this plug-in,
contact Runtime Revolution Ltd. and purchase a licensed version of
Revolution Software. This application will quit when you dismiss this dialog
box." with "OK"
  end if
end preOpenStack

Thanks again Try for the quick heads-up.
