Hi Fred,

A few questions to improve my understanding : 
- what platform are you using ? (MacOS/Windows/...)
- did you import the images or reference them ?
- what are the control IDs ?
---> images need to have an ID >= 300000 or they may
cause conflicts with built-in images.
- what do you mean when you say "Replacing the
standard buttons" ?
---> does that mean you replaced buttons with image
controls, or that you placed these images as icons in
your buttons ?
- what errors do you get from the built application ?
- when you say "saved *.rev won't open", do you mean
that the original file is now corrupt, or are you
talking about 
- if you can open the original stack, what happens
when you run the stack inside Revolution, but with the
IDE turned off ?

I have had one .bmp file that crashed Revolution on
Windows ; perhaps it's a corrupt image file ?

Hope this gets us closer to a solution for your
