This was helpful to the extent that it confirmed my initial assumption that it was possible to build a Window standalone, but it didn't get me any further toward my objective.

I attempted to create a Window standalone in like manner but received a message that I lacked the Window engine. So I went to the Revolution web site and downloaded the Window engine (revolution.exe).

The engine you downloaded needs to be in a certain place. In the Revolution folder, open the Components folder. In that, open the Engines folder. You should see what look like simpletext documents. Try putting the windows engine in there, and name it Windows.

It could be that they're using a special format for the engines, in which case it's probably better to let the standalone builder get the engine for you (by checking the auto-download button in the standalone builder). But since you already have the engine, it's worth a shot to just toss it in there.
