This database is designed for use with Filemaker 12 or as a standalone version. Filemaker is not required using the standalone version. This database was tested on Windows 7 32 bit and 64 bit operating systems.
The following instructions assume that you are familiar with the operation of a computer and the Microsoft Windows operating system.

The Built4 Solutions data management systems are distributed in zip format. If you have already downloaded your copy of the file, you should have a zip file that looks similar to the one in the example. You will need a zip/unzip program to open the files required.

In summary: to install the Built4 application files:
The extraction should have created a single file folder in the root folder named “Built4 XXX”, which contain the Built4 files and sub folders.
It is not recommended that you place Built4 XXX in the C:\program files folder, as it may compromise the security of your system. We suggest storing Built4 XXX in your My Documents folder, but you can store the files anywhere on your computer, including partitions and different drives, and the application will work.
Inside the file folder you will find four files. It is important that you do not alter the names of any of the files. The B4 XXX.fmp12 is the main file. The three remaining files hold your data securely.
A suggestion to organize your recipe information is to create 2 folders. Documents and Photos. This way you will be able to store all your recipe photos and documents with the program itself. Built4 XXX does not STORE the information but references the photos and/or documents. This keeps Built4 XXX lightweight and fast.
