runtime version

A limited version of one program that enables you to run another program. To run a program written in Visual Basic, for example, you need the runtime version of Visual Basic. This allows you to run Visual Basic programs but not to develop them yourself. Many other development applications, particularly database applications, require a runtime version to execute.

Software companies have different approaches to runtime versions. Some allow you to distribute the runtime version freely, while others require that you pay a license fee.
