Standalone Issues

Hi all. 

I have created a standalone after some experimentation that seems to work but I am noticing that most of my buttons that use graphics for their icons are not displaying the icons. I have a single folder in my project containing all the image files for the project. When I import a graphic for a button, I reference the graphic to the image file so that I can replace the image files and change the look and feel of the application. 

I have set the option to copy referenced files on in the standalone settings, but the standalone does not seem to be presesrving the links to the copied graphic files. I'm hoping this will be a simple "Oh just do such and such" sort of problem. I *could* have a startup routine that re-links all the graphic files. That would suck. 

I have also copied the images folder to the application folder, no luck. I copied the images folder to the same relative location to the working stack as it is in the development environment. Still no luck. Any suggestions? I suspect the graphic ID's are not the same in the standalone version of the working stacks as they are in the development version, so the links are effectively broken. I would think the standalone builder would account for this. 

Here's hoping I am missing something simple.
