Hmmm... Maybe this is Windows 64 issue? 

Because I responded to both you and tested and responded to a: *Can anybody
HELP!!* post that required I build a Standalone of a stack with only an
answer button in it in a protected 3.0 stack, I was able to quickly test.

1. I shut down Rev apps I use that I know use encryption.
2. I renamed libeay32.dll and ssleay32.dll to _libeay32.dll and
_ssleay32.dll in my Windows\System32 directory (where I decided, two-years
ago, to stick them).
3. I did a search of my hard drive for other copies of these files. There
are none.
4. I ran the programs that require these libs. They crashed all over the
5. OK... the libs are missing.
6. Confirmed that the EXE that I created to test an Answer command in a 3.0
stack and locked Standalone build does not have these libs where they MUST
be, which is in the root directory or the EXE or in the IDE, it's root
directory, or in the System32 directory.
7. Ran that EXE. It worked fine.

This was all tested on Windows Vista Home Premium and Rev 3.0.

Do you have the ability to test on a 32-bit Windows system? If not, send me
you app off-list and I will test here.

Now I need to reconfigure my system again, so that the apps I run daily
don't crash. ;-)
