Question About Windows Standalone

Hi Greg,

Since you need everything in the Window's Folder to make your standalone run on Windows, you're going to have to give the users the whole thing. As I recall, this has always been one of the gripes about Windows apps. They're just not very "neat". (smile) Sometimes the Mac versions may have separate "externals" as well, since we can't change the compiled app and need something outside (external) the application itself.

The Standalone Builder produced a folder called Windows.  Inside of it is a folder called Externals, which is empty because I have none, the executable file, and the stack files I used in the project.  Do I give users the entire Windows folder or just the executable?  The reason that I ask is that the Mac build hides everything nicely in a package, and I was a little concerned seeing those stack files sitting out in the open.
