Sorry , we can all make mistakes , I missed the ANSWER bit !

The problem ONLY happens when ANSWER is used in the script AND a password is set in the Standalone settings.
Everything works fine in IDE

I corrected some minor script errors as suggested which made no differrence.

Any script I use with ANSWER and PASSWORD SET in Standalone builds 100% in older versions of Rev and always have.

The same scripts ONLY fail to build in REV 3.0 on several different Machines

It does happen ! hopefully someone understands Rev enough to find the solution.
