Once I close and remove from memory my template stack, I still see File Selector in the Project Browser but nowhere else in the IDE so I’m not sure how to remove it.
Even though I don’t create a standalone, the checkboxes for Macintosh, Windows, and Linux were checked. I unchecked the boxes and saved the template stack but the File Selector stack still gets opened when I open my template stack even after I quit and restart LiveCode.
I figure something must be opening it or referencing it in my template stack but I can’t find it.
Regarding the original aim of this email thread…I’ve isolated the problem to encryption/decryption as done in early versions of LiveCode such as 4.6 and later version such as 9.6. Trying to decrypt files saved in early versions of LiveCode with a modern version of LiveCode fails and vice versa.
I made a support ticket to LiveCode support on this.

The only reference I know of is in standalone settings, where it's a checkbox in the Linux pane indicating you want to add it to the standalone. I suppose you could check to see if that's selected, but if you aren't building for Linux then it shouldn't apply. Are you running on a Linux machine? Does the template stack ask the user to select any files?
