revBrowser on Windows

Hello my friends,

I am back from vacation/holiday and am trying to figure out my  
revBrowser problems again.

So far, I seem to have fixed the MaxOSX issues for revBrowser and am  
fixing my path problems.

And on windows I have the path fixed but still have a naming issue  
i.e. a .png is being shown in my field but on OSx it does not so I  
have to fix this.

As far as revBrowser on windows is concerned, it loads the external, I  
check on a built standalone for the instances and there is one. Also I  
do not get an error on loading the browser external.

BUT, It seems however that the browser window while it does load, can  
not be actually seen on the screen and if I mouse over the area where  
it is supposed to load I get feedback (for instance the tooltip on a  
google link) but the window is blank visually.

I think this might be due to the fact that I use a window shape for  
the stack. Is there a workaround for this? Any ideas on a fix?

Another issue I have is when I start a player with a video it starts  
playing in the lower left of the stack instead of the area where the  
player is located. If I stop the player and start again it will now  
play where it is supposed to. this is an incovienence but not a show  

Any ideas are welcome.
