Hey Marty -
Glad you got a good solution for your Miva project. I've been looking
at a third-party extension for Miva for a similar purpose, but I'm
inclined to modify the mmui.mv file directly to call a Rev-based CGI
(probably no better than the third-party Miva solution, but more fun to
work with <g>).
As for your question, you can build a simple standalone that opens that
stack file when launched. I had a similar need, to run a number of
internal apps here, and since I'm always doing weird stuff with the
engine I need to have a separate app running those utilities outside of
my dev environment. I made a simple one-window stack and have been
using it for years.
