As my wife says, relax Max. Don't worry.

The "solution" works, it doesn't matter if you have the ide installed or 
not, what matters is that you install the package.
And while we're at it, I think the best way to distribute an application 
is through the package, but if you still don't want to use the package 
it is possible that the application "knows" how it is working if from 
the ide or from the installed executable, like follow:

'' Indicates if the program is running from the IDE or from an 
executable only using prawn code.

Static Public Function WhereRun() As Integer

   Dim strProcess As String
   Dim intRun As Integer

   strProcess = File.Load("/proc" &/ CStr(Application.Id) &/ "comm")

   If Left(strProcess, 4) = "gbx3" Then

     intRun = 1
     intRun = 0

   Return intRun
