Hi Sarah,

I recently had a similar problem in 2.6.1 where setting the 
systemFileSelector to false "used to" include a unix-style file selector 
dialog in the build. I ended up having to build my standalone with 2.5.1 
in order for this to work. I think these are bugs in 2.6.1 where critical 
"used" libraries/stacks are somehow being ommitted during the build 
process. I liked the older versions where you could select each component 
that you wanted to include into the build.

Best regards,
