Cannot open KARs from arbitrary location on disk
You cannot open a KAR from an arbitrary location on disk, it must reside in a local repository.
One work-around is to create a dialog that prompts the user to move such a KAR into a local repo when they try to open it.
If we're going to keep this restriction in place, I would also think the Save Archive dialog shouldn't allow, or at least make difficult, the saving of KARs in locations besides local repositories.

I tried this (after the fix) but I'm not able to use the command line to open/run the KAR that is not in the local repository.
