It sounds like your stack has the cursor stacks embedded in it as 
substacks, which conflict with those already in the IDE. But check to 
make sure:

In the Finder (or Windows Explorer if you're on a PC) look in Rev's main 
program folder, in a subfolder called Toolset. See if there are two 
copies of revCursors and revMacCursors in there. If so, that's where you 
can compare dates and delete the oldest two. If not, then the IDE is 
fine. It probably is.

In Rev's application browser, open the problem stack and look at its 
substacks. You should see the cursor stacks in there as substacks of 
your own stack. Delete them both. Your own stack should not include any 
cursor stacks. If you need the cursors in a standalone, just assign them 
in Standalone Settings instead.

Save your stack and reopen it. The error should be gone.
