Cannot get a compiled app to work

Hi Greg,

I was about to post a reply with my results, since I already have your
.livecode file (you sent it to me for bug 18958).

I also had to remove this widget, otherwise I was getting an error "cannot
load module" when building the iOS standalone. After removing the widget, I
was able to build an iOS standalone. However, after installing the app on
an iPad, the app was crashing on startup.

I noticed that if I change the "Search for required Inclusions" to "Select
Inclusions" (and rebuild an ios standalone), the app no longer crashes on
startup. So my guess is that "Search for required inclusions" adds an
inclusion X to the required ones, but X cannot be found in the standalone,
thus it crashes.

I suggest you rebuild the standalone *without* removing this custom widget,
but choose "Select Inclusions" and make sure you have checked this
particular widget in the "Inclusions" pane.

Please let us know if this fixes the problem.

Best regards,
