DEPLOYMENT

Compiler

A cross-platform compiler. Compiled code runs faster and is more secure.

4D Interpreted Desktop

4D Interpreted Desktop lets you deploy stand-alone, single user interpreted 4D applications on an unlimited number of machines.

“Interpreted” is similar to “compiled” in that 4D software is embedded in your application, so your users won’t need a copy of 4D on their computer to run the application. But unlike compiled applications, the source code is not protected from view. If you want to distribute compiled applications, you will need to upgrade to 4D Developer Professional.
