If you are using referenced images (those with filename) then relative
paths will be resolved relative to the folder containing the stack they 
are on
first (or should be at least!)

If the stack is the mainstack of the standalone (and thus built into
the exe) then the folder containing the exe (not the app bundle!) is 

So - what is the structure of your app on disk?

Does it work on either platform as it stands?
