Thanks for your reply Mark. I tried that and it still does not work. I even 
reinstalled Rev after deleting everything and tried again but it still does 
not work. I contacted the support folks and RunRev and they said there may 
be something wrong with the registry... Truly grateful for any ideas!

Run the check for updates under the help menu of Rev.  That should fix
your problem.  You may have to do that twice in a row.
