A standalone can be run off a server by almost any number of client
computers. The key factor would be memory in the server.

Just make a standalone for the server. You need have your clients
access the server as they would normally to get files. Have them
double-click on the app. I think an alias would work as well on the
clients as well.

Not sure about this. You might try looking using shell to see how many
instances of the app running there are.

I have written standalones that are being used in server environments
as you describe. They are not controlling how many users though.
Hope this helps some.
