    Putting Runtime Solution on my website: newbie question

    Hi,
    I've discovered deploying my FM as a runtime solution to share with coworkers that don't have FM. I've followed various tutorials on creating the FM runtime solution and it seems to work fine when I put it on a flash drive or CD and give to people.

    I've also uploaded the whole runtime directory to a my website... my limited understanding is that now people can access the same file via a web browser... (?)

    If this is correct... I'm not sure what the url would be to my runtime solution/file.

    Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

    cheers.

    Runtimes cannot not be accessed vis the web. Think of a runtime as just an executable file like Filemaker or MS Word. To share a solution via the web requires an FM server license/subscription so you can use WebDirect.

    Vincedubeau,

    Thanks for the clarification! I will continue just manually passing along the runtime files for now.

    Appreciate your help.
    Cheers.

    You could still use your website as a means of distribution; it's just that the runtime has to be used locally.
