Yes, creating a runtime solution is single-user. Otherwise, FileMaker wouldn't be able to make any money or have to charge licensing fees for distribution of runtime solutions.

All you have to do is use FileMaker Pro 8 (5 simultaneous users) or FileMaker Server 8 (250 simultaneous users) as a host on a dedicated computer. Then, each client or guest will need a copy of FileMaker Pro to access the solution through Open Remote.

Runtime is for situations where there will be only one user.

When you get your FileMaker licenses: don't put the files on a shared server like you were doing with the USR files. OS file sharing leads to performance problems and eventually to file corruption. The files need to be opened locally with either FileMaker Server or FileMaker Pro and everyone else needs to use "open remote" to connect to the host.
