revCopyFolder - execution error in standalone

I’ve been fiddling with this and so far this is what I've found:
The problem only exists on Mac
In the IDE it works fine on both LC 9.5.1 and 9.6
If I create a basic test stack, standalones from 9.5.1 and 9.6 both work fine
But when I build my actual app with Levure, the app built with 9.5.1 works but the app built with 9.6 does not work
The result just contains "execution error"
So I guess I need to post something in the Levure forum to see if anyone else has had the same issue.

>>> I'm trying to implement "revCopyFolder" in a standalone. It works fine in the IDE but gets an "execution error" in a standalone. In the dictionary it says the "Common library" is implemented. I am manually setting inclusions and don't see anything there that hints at this. Is there some library that I need to select? I have been using revMoveFolder successfully in this same standalone. Any tips?
