Hi Richmond

I know this might sound stupid but .....

Did you create a BRAND NEW stack within 8.1 and try that?

Now if you opened it in 9 and it worked that still doesn't mean what I
suggest won't work because these are computers we are working with.
Sometimes they are not logical (because we don't have access to all the
data - read extraneous crap - that they are reading from hidden crevices ).

Just as a for instance I was trying to transfer a program of mine from
windows to android - LC v6.7.11) it would not compile to a standalone try
as i might.
So I created a new stack cut and pasted everything and it worked - but it
shouldn't have should it?

Kindest Regards Lagi

p.s.

if that no worky  re-install livecode and  remove  the preferences files
(switch it off and on again of software!)
