Missing Functionality

Hi all. 

When compiling standalones, I am having difficulty with certain functionality. For example, I just compiled an app with a field that has this script:

on closeField
   if not isTime(me) then
      answer warning "Please enter a valid time in hh:mm format." as sheet
      put empty into me
   end if
   if field "fldStartTime" is empty then exit closeField
   put timeCalc(field "fldStartTime", me) into field "fldTotalTime"
end closeField

isTime and timeCalc are both contained in the card script, and they work in the IDE, but not in the standalone. These functions use the convert command pretty extensively. I have had a similar experience with compiling a much larger project, where the revMail function does not work in a standalone, but does in the IDE. Any ideas? 

The first project is a very simple one card project. I have Livecode determine which libraries to include. I could just select ALL the libraries, but that would make my project larger than it needs to be. 

I am using version 6.7.6 build 5033 in OS X 10.10.5 (although I seriously doubt the OS version has anything to do with it). I do not have the funds to upgrade at this time so that explains why I am using 6.7.6 right now, plus each time I attempt to use a version 7 that I can still download, I have serious problems with my projects, and end up reverting for safety's sake.
