From Dwayne Wright
FileMaker 8 and Higher
The Get(HostApplicationVersion) function will return the version of FileMaker Pro or FileMaker Server which is hosting the viewed FileMaker database. This function will not return a value at all if the database is not actively being hosted to other users.
I’m not certain why someone would use this function. By what it returns, I guess you would be able to know if the solution is hosted by FileMaker Server (because it would return something akin to Server(version)) or being hosted by a regular copy of FileMaker (which would return something akin to Pro(version) or ProAdvanced(version)).
