Ken, thank you very much for your help. I have NOT installed the DAZ3D software yet (I have the old DAZ studio whose environment variables do not include "-"), so I would like to use your indications *before* installing the DAZ soft. FYI, I have all versions of revstudio then livecode installed on my mac. When I open the revdebugger stack in its on its LC version (or another one), I do not see any script to edit in it. Do I have to enable editing of the IDE (can't remember how...) or do I need to extract the revdebugger from the bundle to put it into an editable place then put it back into the bundle (Livecode is the Applications folder, which is admin, and i general, I avoid working on the admin account)?
Very best

This turned out to be because it inserted two "bad" environment variables: ($DAZSTUDIOVERSION_4-64 and $DAZSTUDIO_4-64) which LC would error out on when trying to work with global variables. The "-" in these globals is what did it…
