Down a leafy lane or up queer street?

In the IDE, specialFolderPath("resources") points to the folder containing 
the working stack. In a standalone it points to the folder containing files 
you've included in the Copy Files pane of the standalone builder.

Therefore, there will never be a folder specialFolderPath("resources") & 
"/Desktop/..." unless you have created a Desktop folder inside the one 
holding your stack. The correct path would be 
specialFolderPath("resources") & "/Obfuscated/May 2018/assets/img/"
