Connecting to Valentina using revdb_connect

Hello All,

I was wondering if some kind soul might enlighten me on a couple of 

I'm running the latest RR 2.5 build, with a Studio license (for both 
Mac and Windows platforms).

First Item:

If I try to connect to a Valentina database using the revdb_connect 
function from my stack while running in the RR development environment, 
I get the error message "revdberr, invalid database type".

But if I go ahead and create a stand-alone application, it works just 

I tried using the revSetDatabaseDriverPath to each  of the following 
values in turn (when running in the development environment on Mac OS 
X) and it didn't help:

/Applications/Revolution 2.5/components
/Applications/Revolution 2.5/components/global environment
/Applications/Revolution 2.5/components/global 
/Applications/Revolution 2.5/components/global 
/Applications/Revolution 2.5/components/global 

Second Item:

It seems like you have to connect to a pre-existing Valentina file, one 
that was created with the Valentina application.  Is there any way to 
have the RR application create one "on the fly" if it doesn't exist.

Many thanks!
