Launch Revolution (make sure your current application IS NOT open). Open the glxappLauncher.rev stack found in the framework helper stacks folder of the distribution folder.

Open the glxappLauncher stack script (stack title is GLX Application). Copy the entire script to the clipboard. Remove the glxappLauncher stack from memory or simply quit and restart Revolution.

Open your applications glxappLauncher stack (launcher.rev on disk) and replace the stack script with the clipboard contents.

After updating the script you will need to build a new Standalone using glxappLauncher.
