If you know the path you need then put this code in
your stack;

   answer question effective filename of this stack
   answer question defaultFolder

after creating the standalone run the code above from
the app and see if either of the paths provided are the
path you are actually trying to use.

The first code line will provide a path to the executable
of your app.

The second code line will be a path where the app is

There have been threads in the past relating to the defaultFolder, and how it can in certain cases cause other issues, so I think my strategy for avoiding setting the defaultFolder is the way to go. I've been meaning to for a while now. I just wanted to alert everyone in case they run into the same issue. This is just with Windows BTW. I don't break out my stack files on MacOS.
