Actually my real problem was why Rev was doing this (ie not picking up the
correct working directory). However, found it was not Rev. My installer was
not setting the 'Start in' parameter of the shortcut, so the standalone was
only pickup up the exe from the app dir, then running on the desktop. Being
a single exe, there were no errors produced.
Lesson learned here.

You can inspect and modify Rev's concept of the working directory with
the defaultFolder property.
Also beware that Windows 2000 and XP don't allow apps to write to
\Program Files\ except by administrator level users.
