It looks to me like the defaultFolder is not what you think it is.
The error message seems to say it's looking in the same folder as the 
InfoWallet application, i.e., inside the folder.

Also... looking for file and looking for stack are different actions.
If you're asking for a stack then the stack has to be in memory.
Asking for a file will look in the current defaultFolder.
