Building a double-clickable client shell


I'm new to Filemaker, and am using version 10.  Is it possible to build and deploy a double-clickable client application that when clicked, connects to a server across the internet and begin to use a specific database?  If so, what are the necessary steps to make this happen?

We have employees out in the field or at home where they'd need access to the database, but we have no way of providing them IT support.  One main requisite is that the client (software client) needs to be small in size (easy to download and install).  Our users are not very tech savy and thus minimal effort on their part to get up and running, the better.
