revBrowser in standalone

Mark, Thank you for jumping on this with me. I was starting to pull on  
my beard and it's ugly enough without having patches in it.

OK, put the externalPackages of stack "Media"  from within the IDE  
results in nothing for this stack. I thought since this is now built  
into RR that I don't need to so any start using etc. Is that right.

I am trying to build a standalone using RR 2.9 on OSX 10.5.4 for use  
on OSX and XP.

I have tried the RR 3.0 beta with the same results.

There is no execution error. What I am getting is the image file that  
I am using just shows up blank or empty when built but in the IDE it  
displays the browser. I am using a blank image holder. Should the  
image holder have an image in it?

revBrowser is built into the package contents so it was my thinking  
that the externals property would not be needed. If I use the  
externals property should I put the bundle outside of the package in  
the default folder?
