Surely the idea of having feedback from testers was to iron out those difficulties so that others do not get stuck
Of course that's true to a degree, and to be fair I think the problems you had have largely been ameliorated by adding warnings to the program.  But the other person who provided feedback had much more difficulty than you did, even to the extent of not understanding how the Embedded Files feature works (despite it working in an identical fashion to BB4W, and even presenting an identical UI).  I really worry that if somebody so experienced struggled with it, releasing it to the 'wide world' would be unwise.

Perhaps (and of course I'm joking, but it's tempting!!) the program, when first run, should present the user with a multiple-choice questionnaire to assess his level of knowledge.  It could ask questions like 'What does the REM!Fast compiler directive do, and when mustn't you use it?".  That would sort the wheat from the chaff!  :-)
