You should be able to (that's why my reply started "I don't think this
is the answer, ...")
It's not, by any chance, in a sub-stack is it ? The filename of a
substack will be empty - but you can use "the effective filename of this
stack" to get around that. And if it's in the Rev/Dreamcard Player, then
its filename will be empty even if it's a main stack. And if it's run
from RevOnline, then again the filename is empty .... but for a
standalone I thought it ought to give you the full path to the
application (and it does for me, Rev 2.5 on Win, standalone on Win).
Might be worth exploring a bit to see if there's a bug there that needs
