The IDE loads different DLLs from those it includes in standalones. So
there is a revsecurity.dll (near/next to) the IDE engine on Windows, and
also one in the Runtime/Windows... folder. The latter is copied into
standalones, the former is only used by the IDE.
It suggests that you have previously copied a newer DLL over the one
near the IDE engine - so it works in the IDE... Then when you copied the
same DLL into the runtime folder, it then works in standalones too.
The DLLs from newer versions aren't guaranteed to be compatible with
older versions - in the specific case of revsecurity it depends on
whether OpenSSL has changed its API in a way which causes an
incompatibility but it hasn't done this very often (fortunately in this
case, it would seem!).
