Title

FileMaker Pro 11 Advanced – Installation/Deployment/Licensing questions

Post

Howdy,

As per the title, I have a few questions in this regard for the company I am  contracted to that wishes to have an FMP solution (first of many, I hope :) )

This is what I am envisioning, based upon my understanding of FMP Adv. :

- purchase one copy of FMP 11 Adv. to create a standalone app for their  requirement

- this copy of FMP 11 Adv. will be on one local development machine only to  create this “application”

- the resultant FMP 11 Adv. “application” will then be installed on up to the  max. of 10 other machines, with a single .fp7 on a shared network drive that all  10 can access

… or…

- is it that there would be only the developed “application.fp7” file that  would be on the shared network drive and that up to the max. of 10 concurrent  users could access this without having any version of FMP installed upon their  machine

… or …

- am I totally mixed up (quite possibly :) ) as to what and how to go about  this in the most cost-conscious manner :)

I’m not new to FMP having used it since literally day one on the Mac, but  have been away from it since 5.0 and have never attempted a network or Advanced  “standalone” installation. Any suggestions, clarifications, assistance will be  tremendously appreciated.

Cheers!
Lyle
