Smells a bit like a job for embedded server?

I'm sorry I wasn't clear.
Our clients are large institutions which have several potential users of
our single product at their site. Currently, our app is a PC db app,
which lends itself well to super-user mentality of copy-and-paste.

We expect the new FB CS app will be installed and run in the usual way
at corporate - FB on a single PC with the app EXE in a shared folder on
the same (ptp) PC or from a true network folder with appropriate READ
writes. In this arrangement, disregarding performance issues, if I were
to add a new user of this app, what would I have to install on the
client machine to access and run the EXE from the ptp PC?
