Hi Jim,

> Then I copied the stack and my copy of DreamCard

> both to her disk and opened the stack. I got the following surprises:
> 1. The previous and next arrows I used from the Rev image library were 
> blank. The buttons worked, but had no icons. (These were the only 
> icons used.)
> 2. A palette stack with one field no longer scales the field when the 
> window is resized. I used the Geometry Manager to do the scaling.
> 3. The menus look OK and all work except for the one that uses 
> "answer" to confirm deleting a card. Nothing happens when that item is 
> selected.
> 4. I change the cursor to "hand" over one special (locked) field. 
> Instead of the hand, on her machine I get the watch.
> All three of these things work fine on my machine *using my

did you only copy the "Revolution Dreamcard Player" application or the 
folder "Revolution Dreamcard Player"?

The latter one should work as exspected since all the icons, libraries 
etc... are in this folder!
