It works okay, but it may not be able to find your stacks. Unless you 
pass a full path to the stack you want to use, Rev will look in the 
defaultfolder for the stack. There are two ways to fix the problem. The 
first would be to set the defaultfolder to the directory the stacks are 
in. (If you have 100 stacks, that's probably the easiest way.) The other 
way would be to move your stacks to Rev's default location, which is the 
folder that has Rev in it, or a subfolder there. This is pretty standard 
for standalones, but I don't recommend it when using the IDE.

You can tell if Rev knows where your stack is by doing this in the 
message box:

   put there is a stack "myStackName"

If the answer is false, then use a full relative path instead.
