How are you copying them in? If you put them in a custom prop you can  
write the contents of the custom prop back into a file (put the  
storedFile of this stack into URL "binfile:thefilename.xxx").

If it's copied by adding the file in the standalone settings then  
it's sitting next to the application after building. Note that in the  
case of OS X it will be inside the application package.
