I can't help, but I can confirm this except that in my case, Windows
insists on using WinRAR to boot my .rev stacks. When I choose "Open
with..." I get a list that does not include Revolution, so I choose
Browse and go and find the Revolution.exe. After finding it, it still
doesn't appear in the list, so I can't select it and I can't tell
Windows to use it for all .rev files.

I assumed it was just me as I am not a Windows person, but maybe it is
Rev. Should I try re-installing? I uninstalled WinRAR but that didn't
