    RUNTIME

    The Runtime Validate Expert which accompanies the Validate Expert in the Localizer Edition and Developer/Pro Editions allows the user to carry out this process while the software is running.

    I bump into runtime used this way two times and I guess runtime is different. Who can tell me what special usage runtime has and why it is captalised here? And the meaning of the first half of the sentence?

    Re: RUNTIME

    It's capitalised because it is a program on its own that is part of the various editions- you get at least two programs- Runtime Validate Expert + Validate Expert. Presumably, Runtime Validate Expert is not included in the standard or cheaper editions.

    Re: RUNTIME

    Specifically 'runtime' is used here to mean 'operating while the program is running'. That is, the validation doesn't happen before or after the program runs, but at 'runtime'.
