maybe i understand your problem wrong - your "start from an icon" is clicking on an rebol-script which starts rebol? in the betas launch is disabled if rebol is startet with a script as argument. this is for the beta-testpanel, where the demo counld launch other scripts, but the scripts itself could not launch. rebol-designers where very sceptical in allowing rebol-scripts to start other rebols. launch was a workaround to enable starting scripts without security- risks. (the very first launch was able to pass "-s" to a launched script, setting its security to none.. so it was disabled for launched scripts.) in 1.0 the testpanel is dropped for a while and the old launch-behavior keept. BTW you can hack it as "%user.r -owner". if you do [hack-launch: :launch] in %user.r you should have a working launch in 'hack-launch (at least when i tried it some month ago). if you dont keep it, there is no way to get launch back for a script of course (AFAIK:). but if you should do..?
