Hi Graham & Heather Harrison,
If I uderstand you correctly, you want your script to find out where
the My Revolution folder resides, in case the user changed it. To get
this path, you can use the revEnvironmentCustomizationPath() function.
This function isn't documented either ;-) and this function is not
available outside the IDE.
Maybe you don't need all this. The externals that I have inside the
Externals folder of the My Revolution folder load automatically.
