Can't make a stand alone

I had a pickle of a time making a LC 6 Community Edition standalone but
figured out the problem and perhaps it is a bug / issue for others too????

I had LC 5.5 EDUCATION version (for my summer camp attendance challenge)
and built a desktop application on WIN last year. This year I started
working on it again with LiveCode 6. Community, but I could NOT get the
Standalone app to LAUNCH in WIN XP, Vista, Win7, on 4 different PCs. Boo.
But, it works with LC 5.5.1 -- and the message of NONCOMMERCIAL / Education
use comes up for 3 seconds or so -- about the same time that the standalone
tries to work before stopping.

PERHAPS one can't use an code base that began with EDUCATIONAL LC projects,
make changes, and then go to LC Community, make more changes and have any
luck making a WIN Standalone open?

So, is this the case? Could it be? Can there be a 'scrubber' of sorts that
can be removed from Education build apps so that they can move forward?

Thanks to Mark S on the Facebook Dev group for helping me to this point.

BTW, no extensions used, as per a past tip too.
