The weirdness is that I have .exe files that I encapped previously that work perfectlt but when I tried to check to see if I encap them again,  they produce this error.
Possible reasons are:
1. You encap with 2.7.7, better to use 2.7.8.
2. You encap with an encapper which has no View capabilities, better to use encmdview.
3. The were some functions in your let's say rebol.r or user.r file which you #include, but now those files are changed and there are some missing functions.
Thank you so much for your response Endo. This is such a mystery. I even get this with a one-line view statement (though it is tied to view in some way; a "hello world" to the console works). I've done all 3 of your suggestions including going back to 2.7.7 just to test. I can't figure out what it could be (obviously!) since I haven't changed anything to my knowledge. You know, it's old stuff that used to encap besides the simplicity of the one-liner test and the new app I originally tried. Anyway, I'll keep at it. Thanks.
Dumb Dumb Dumb! I must have deleted the encmdview.exe tool.  You were right Endo (#2) I forgot there was a distinction between the encmd and the view one and since it was missing I didn't put 2 and 2 together. Luckily I saved the sdk zip files. Thanks, your answer spurred my thoughts.

You are welcome, glad it helped.

can I get 2.7.8 SDK anywhere for Windows/Linux ?
I have working licenses.
I only have SDK 2.7.6
Unless there's some reason you *need* 2.7.8, best to stick with what works. CALL had some changes that might affect you.
Gregg, I haven't used CALL for anything in my current products.  My hope is that the versions of security / auth are best and matched with 2.7.8 View, but I don't really know, but my Command license unlocks all the View 2.7.8 Command-like features, so my prototype system I *hope* matches the same version of SDK.

Pretty sure that you have to pay to upgrade from 2.7.6 to 2.7.8
except the page that does the upgrade payments is 500
Graham Thanks!  I will send them a check if I can find the address.  I have bought everything REBOL has ever sold for money, I am pretty sure   0-o-o<   (the eFishAnt)
When you send the check, perhaps you could ask Carl to add UTC+13 to the Roku setup!

You can send the check to:
Cindy Sassenrath
245 E Perkins St
Ukiah, CA 95482
They are handling the license fees manually now. Make sure to include your contact info in case she has any questions.
This is really retro!  No email?  No paypal? How do people outside of the USA pay license fees?

GrahamC: Once I figure out from Cindy what is what, then we can figure out a way to accept payments via credit card/Bitcoin/etc.

I have a script that runs fine using RebCmdview but when I encapp with encmdview I get an error trying to send email ussing prot-ssend.r and prot-esmtp.r
Here is the error:
** Access Error: Invalid port spec: scheme ssl host either all port/proxy/type
= generic generic bp port/proxy/host port/proxy/host: none...
** Where: open-proto
