Like most apps, Rev uses the Win API to do its thing, so Win must be
loaded for the API to be available.
Such a specialized need will require something deeper, perhaps talking
directly to the BIOS. I'm no Windows expert -- maybe Chipp's engineer
can chime in for guidance.
If you don't mind my asking, what does your app do that it needs to run
outside of Windows?
