Understanding Runtime


Could someone point me in the right direction for understanding runtimes. I have read the filemaker help section regurading runtimes but I need something a little more dumbed down that can walk me through the process and explain everything.

As an example I have used the developer utillity to create a runtime. When it is done I find that I have a folder containing many files such as .dll along with the runtime file with a .usr extension. My first question is, now what? What do I do with it. I tried double clicking the .usr file and it wants me to select a file to open it with.

So I am looking for a little more in depth documentation about what a runtime is, how it works and what to do with it.
