Hello All,

I am running Windows 7 Home Premium and LiveCode 5.0. I just noticed something and am at a loss...

I created two simple stacks; one is a Launcher, and the other is the Main Application. 

See the following tutorial to see an example:

For the Launcher stack, I created a standalone Windows .exe, and for the Main Application, I left it as a .livecode stack file that is launched by the Launcher.exe program. The standalone Launcher.exe application successfully opens the stack file, but the buttons on the stack file's dialog will not allow an answer dialog to open. For example, a button with the following code is on the Main Application (i.e., the stack file opened by the Launcher):

on mouseUp
answer "Cool!"
end mouseUp

When I click on the button, nothing happens. However, when running the stack within the LiveCode IDE, the button successfully launches the "Cool!" answer dialog... What am I missing here? I tried running the Launcher.exe as the administrator, but still no go... I also tried compiling using LiveCode 4.6.4, but no go.
