Standalone Build Problem

Bob:

Follow Devin's advice.  Building a launcher (splash) app shouldn't be that complicated.  The standalone just needs to be a simple minimal stack that launches your "real" main stack containing all your logic, sub stacks, etc.

First, none of my data grids work, even though I have added a data grid to the splash stack. Second, none of the image files I have referenced in the primary stack are being accessed. I suppose I will need to manually add those as well to the application folder.

Taking the advice of others I have added a data grid to the splash stack so that the data grid library get added. Now when I attempt to set the mainstack of the actual stack that contains all the business logic, it fails. I think I might know why, but I’ll ask to be sure.
