    Standalone Runtime



      Standalone Runtime


      I've developed a program in FileMaker Pro 9 and just purchased FileMaker Pro 10 Advanced. I would like to know how to create a standalone runtime solution that will not require FileMaker Pro applications to be installed on someone elses computer.  Of course, I will need to know how to get my database on there.


      Thanks for your help.

          Hi Blueboy,


          It's fairly simple to bind the runtime solution.  Open FMPA alone and choose 'Developer Utilities…' from the 'Tools' menu. Then add the .fp7 solution file(s); specify the project folder; and set the solution options.


          However, there is a lot more to your question so I would suggest you refer to pages 11 to 17 in the Development Guide which can be accessed from the FMPA 'Help>Product Documentation>Development Guide' menu.

               It is SUPER simple.  Filemaker Pro has done an excellent job with that interface.  Once you have the database ready, it is made into a standalone application within 5 minutes.  You do have to make a Mac version on a Mac machine, and the XP version on an XP machine.
