Richard: What you suggest makes a lot of sense. As someone who doesn’t build complex apps very often, my first question is “why would I turn off error notifications?” Would I miss something by turning them off when making a build? Anyway I think it would be far more straightforward to just have

Standalone building needs to be moved to a separate process. Handling it within the IDE process was fine as long as the only thing the Standalone Builder did was bind a copy of the engine to a copy of the stack file. But today, building a standalone means deep modifications to the stack

You can also turn off messages and errors from the Toolbar before you build. This should prevent any pre/open or pre/close scripts from running. And make sure all inspectors, message box and project browser are closed too as well as any windows/stacks other than your main stack. Sean On Sun, 4

ResolveID is referring to the stack, card and object IDs to tie it to your breakpoints. Focus on your main stack. In the Development menu bar, choose Clear All Breakpoints. It’s a good idea to do this every time before a main standalone build. So, Delete all your breakpoints. Then resave. (Close
