Applescript Fails in Standalone on Mac Built with 8.1.6

I added some logging on the card and in the standalone we see

this

   do tScript as applescript
      put the result into pMessage
        ShowStatusMsg pMessage, true, true

returns "execution error"

So, why does apple script return execution error when run from 8.1.6 standalones?

    OK got bit again by this one
    
    We do a lot of of in-house production tools that require our big server on the LAN to be mounted.
    
    For years I just kept a custom prop in these stacks
    
    uMountServer
    
    tell application "Finder"
    mount volume "afp://###ServerIP###/###Volume###" as user name "###ServerUser###" with password "###ServerPassword###"
    end tell
    
    
    different stacks will prompt users for IP, USER, PWD  or in some cases I will hard wire these  into the startup script.
    
    This *always* works in my old apps that were made with "only Gawd knows what old version of LC <7" standalones made long time ago.
    
    but now, in 8.1.6  I can set this up in the IDE, the serve ron the LAN mounts as expected, but when I make a standalone, it fails.
    
    I'm looking through all the inclusions and I don't see any external that I need to check for execution of
    
    do tScript as Applescript
    
    this, which, as said, works find in the IDE
    
    (actuall log in creds replaced here for security)
    
    on mountServer
    if not (there is a folder (the uServerPath of this stack)) then
    -- set the itemdel to "/"
    -- put item 3 of the uServerPath of this stack into tVolume
    ShowStatusMsg ("Mounting Server..."), true
    put the uMountServer of this stack into tScript
    replace "###ServerIP###" with (the uServerIP of this stack) in tScript
    replace "###Volume###" with "-------" in tScript
    replace "###ServerUser###" with "--------" in tScript
    replace "###ServerPassword###" with "-------" in tScript
    # put tScript   -- check to see that we are getting the right login set up …
    do tScript as applescript
    end if
    end mountServer
