View/Pro is not included.

Correct, there is no replacement.

That won't work. You need to build your script first with the #include statements, and *then* run it with rebface. #include is a preprocessor statement, and is not understood by rebface.

If you have the "title" option in the encap header, it won't build the binary .. bug. Quickest thing to do if you didn't follow the above is: 1. Download a Altme client from 2. Log onto rebol world and request an account 3. Someone there can talk you thru building an encap application -- Graham Chiu Rebol Encyclpaedia Project
