Hi Mark!

I have studio licenses for both mac and windows platforms and have 
tested this updater on both.  The mac side updated with no complaints 
and no errors.  On the Windows side I got this error message:

There was an error executing a script in stack Revolution Version 
Checker.  No more information is available because the stack is 
password protected.

I acknowledged the message, quit Revolution, and tried again.  This 
time instead of two updates being available, there was only one 
"revstandalonesettings,"  so apparently the first updated was correctly 
downloaded in spite of the error message.

I received the same error as before, close Revolution, and restarted 
it.  This time, when I checked for updates, I was told:

You have the latest version of Revolution along with the latest updates.
