As a follow-up -- there are many ways to do some things. The reason the
app should be on the client machines is speed. Loading the application
off the server may take time. However, if you use DEO to deploy the
objects for the app, it makes sense to put the DEO folder(s) on the
server ... that way only one update needs to be made to individual
objects if something gets modified. (Objects in this case: .pro, .wfo,
.reo, etc.)

The chapter(s) on deployment, specifically the stuff dealing with Inno
Setup, discusses a method of, on installation, creating an install that
can deploy both to server *and* client machines ...
