Finding errors in a standalone

I guess I asked that question rather badly.
I didn't mean "what info should I get from tsNetInit ?"
I meant "what info should I get when a standalone app crashes" ?
All I'm getting now is this empty dialog box that says "execution error"
and has no further info.
Well, it turns out I finally tracked it down : it was a missing
inclusion for mergJSON.
The app has a splash stack, then the real stack, and lots of behaviour
stacks - so it wasn't doing very well on "search for inclusions", so I
was doing manual inclusions. The problem always occurred when I tried to
do some network activity (hence me being suspicious that I was was
misusing tsNet). In fact, the app always does asynch POSTs, and includes
some info which comes from an array, as JSON data, via calls to
I thought I was OK because I had ticked both
not realizing there is also an entry for "mergJSON".
Fixed that - and all seems to be happy for now.
Thanks again to everyone who helped.
