This one isn't your system config. Rev just looks at the Externals 
folder contents and loads what it sees in there. It's worked the same 
way for the last 10 years across all versions of Rev and in all 
operating systems.

If you've already set up the external your original way (into the Rev 
app folder itself) then that could cause a conflict and may be what's 
preventing the standard method from working. But as long as it works for 
you, leave it for now. It will stop working the next time you update Rev
