2.7 BUG: Getting Started with a Database

Turns out, it's not a bug!

Mark W helped me out today and it turns out it's not too difficult to 
setup 2.7 to automatically install database drivers.

We'll be ammending our altSQLite auto-install stacks soon to help out, 
but in the meantime:

For Windows users:
You need to install the DLL as mentioned previously:

Find the folder where Rev in installed, then be sure and copy the
bundle/DLL to the folder below.

/Externals/Database Drivers

Next, update your "database drives.txt" file to have the last line read:


so it will appear in the standalone settings for proper inclusion into
the standalone.

Then copy the external and the "database drives.txt" and put them both 
in the folder:

\Runtime\Windows\x86-32\Externals\Database Drivers

and everything should work fine. I expect the same should be done for 
Mac users.

Thank-you Mark Waddingham :-)
