Are you using Windows or OSX. If you are I think you might need to type
in the message box of the stack you are using
set the externals of this stack to "./VXCMD_Macho_MC"
so that the stack knows to use the Xcmd (p 4 of the VXCMD docs). You
have to quit Rev or purge the stack from memory and then start afresh
before the property is registered. If your file path or Xcmd is
different then modify the set command accordingly. I think the macho
version doesn't ship with OSX Rev so you will need to download it from
Paridigmasoft.com. I don't know about windows but I think you need
VXCMD_Win_MC.dll. That is what the docs say.
If you get the externals set to your stack you should be able to type
into the message box and have the version returned.
