How did you build your standalone? Is it one executable file or did
you use the splash screen method where you have an executable that
opens your program stack? If the former than make sure that you
include the database support libraries when you build the executable.
If the latter then you need to start using the stack that you built the
executable with in your program stack since the externals functions are
assigned to and available only within the splash screen stack.
Here is an example-
You have two stacks. Stack 1 is splash.rev which is used to build the
executable. Stack 2 is program.rev which is your main program stack
which has all of the database calls. When you build splash.rev as an
executable Revolution will assign the externals it needs to connect and
talk to the database to the splash.rev stack. Any calls to a database
will work if called from splash.rev. When you executable calls
go to stack "program.rev"
and you try to make calls to the revdb_* in program.rev these calls
will fail since the external functions/commands are not in the message
path for this stack. To fix this you can do the following in
start using stack "splash.rev"
which will make all of the external functions/commands available to
splash.rev available to your program.rev stack as well. This should
fix the problem.
