The computer acting as the Server requires a Shared Folder.
An Alias is required on each client machine to access the program.
A copy of the Program folder is not required on each Client computer.

The Backup and Restore feature allows you to back up the records only
for use in a transfer, typically to a newer version of the program (without records).
