Using Datagrids with 'stackrunner' like launcher.

I have a lot of 'quick' stacks around that are too specific and tiny for
each to have its own engine - what I've been doing is compiling a standalone
'Launcher' that looks at a web folder and lists the available stacks.
i then select one and launch it via the 'go URL' command. Slick. Inspired by
Ken Ray's invention. It can also upload stacks.
I can then use any of these stacks anywhere with no IDE. Very nice except I
can't seem to make datagrids work on stacks that are used this way. I was
able to ascertain that indeed the substack with the datagrid template was
there. But the datagrid just won't respond.
I've tried start-using but it seems to have no effect.
I've read the piece on how to add the datagrid to stacks assembled in the
standalone creator, however this is different.
I don't change the splash stack - everything other than the engine and
libraries live in the current stack.
How do I connect the datagrid to the substack in this situation? It's a
drag to have two pieces , but since this is on the same stack file,
shouldn't this just work?
thanks for any help
