When you're in developer environment and you check the defaultFolder 
property, it will always return the path to the Rev application by, 
well, default. You can change the defaultFolder to whatever you want.

Once you build a distribution from your stack the defaultFolder is 
the folder containing your standalone app, since that is where the 
runtime engine resides.
