The message box stack in Rev is a very complex stack used for running in the
Development Environment.   Notice all the icons that allow you to display
globals, and many other parts of the Rev environ.

 When you compile a standalone, it is not included.
Basically, you need to roll your own, or use the Answer, Ask dialogs.

One of the gurus may chime in to correct me, but since it is Saturday late,
I figured a quick answer by me might save you some time.  The next well
informed answer could be many hours away.

Hope this helps.
