libsodium on LiveCode?

Hi Brian

Looks like there’s an issues in the code folder stuff. At the moment it will look for `code\x86-win` when deploying a standalone it seems. I will patch it in a bit to `code\x86-win32`. By the looks of the IDE extension loading code it will be actually work for win or win32 (it does a filter with `*-win*` on the folders) at the moment so this is unlikely to be your problem.

For 64 bit it would be `code\x86_64-win32` however that’s only for the FileMaker plugin at the moment so also unlikely to be your problem.

So… just to confirm. Your dll is called libsodium-23.dll and is built for x86? You might want to dump exports to check the dll <>

Note you should not use `__safe` here and instead call the function from within an unsafe block.
