It should work as long as the dialogdata has a value. Check your prompt 
handler to make sure it's setting that. Is this for your own use only? I 
usually just use the message box to set the version custom property.

The short version is stored in your mainstack in the 
revStandaloneSettings property set, but those properties get stripped 
out during a standalone build, so they wouldn't be available to your 
standalone scripts anyway. Using your custom property is the best way to 
keep a permanent reference.
