Standalone Creation - Windows "Externals" Sub-folder

Hi from Beautiful Brittany,

When creating a Windows Standalone Application,
the generated Windows folder contains a sub-folder
called "Externals". For my stacks, this folder has
always been empty. This is convenient for me, because
I can take the .exe file out of its environment,
and put it anywhere for execution.

I would surmise that if the sub-folder contained
anything, I would always have to keep the .exe
file and the Externals folder in the same folder.

However, always curious, I would like to know
under what circumstances does this sub-folder
contain anything ?
