Network - Running A Standalone Application From A Network Server

I have written a standalone estimation package for our company using
Revolution. About a half dozen people use the program. We tried putting
the app on the company server, but it runs awfully slow. This whole
process raises several questions:
1. Can a standalone stack, running on a server, actually be used by
more than 1 person at a time without problems?
2. Related Question: When somebody opens this stack on the server. Is
it actually running on the stack, or does the program run on the
3. Related Question: When a person is working on an estimation project,
all the values for that project are temporarily stored in various
fields within revolution. This info is later saved on a server as a
text file. Am I correct in assuming that if more than 1 person is
running the app off the server, if indeed this is possible, that it
could create quite a mess?
4. Related Question: Since this is a new program, I am coming up with a
new version at least twice a week. If having several people running the
stack off the server is not possible, is there a way to quickly update
the stack on everybody's individual computers with a newer version?
I hope all this makes sense.
