Since this is working in the IDE it is possible that the standalone is 
missing a code resource.  I know that Valentina requires this as does 
the EnhancedQT external though I'm not sure about MySQL.  I looked 
around a little bit to find where Revolution stores the code resource 
that it needs to add for Valentina but I couldn't find it.  Anyone know 
where what file it is a part of?  Perhaps if MySQL requires this as 
well it is in the same file?
