but that doesn't seem to be the case for me.

on mouseUp
   answer "in the button scrpt" & cr & exists (stack "rawForms")
   set the passkey of stack "rawForms" to "blahBlahBlah"
   answer the result
   send "yeehaw2" to stack "rawForms"
   answer "yeehaw2 sent"
end mouseUp

 the first answer confirms "true" for the existence.

THe next line causes "
an error occurred on line 0

241,3,1, mouseup
353,0,0,<long name of button>

I'm only setting the password itself in the Standalone Application Settings
window, if that matters, so the problem ony happens once I make a standaone.
