Multi-standalone communication

I tried put "test_foo" into $FOO from within one instance of Revolution, 
then answer $FOO from within another. Answer is empty. Documentation also 
says that on Windows $ can be used to read parameters passed in a command 
line... While on Unix and MacOS this should modify environment variable...

I just tried it on WinXP and it worked here. From the message box: 
put "test string" into $foo 
When I look in the variable watcher, I see the variable and its 
contents. I didn't try a shell command though.
