I was wondering if there is a way for me to run a DAQRuntime on a PC without DAQfactory loaded?

No, and then you'd lose the ability to switch that runtime into development mode on the fly and without installing anything else. What exactly are you trying to achieve?

I should add that very few applications run without some additional software. That software is often DLL's, as is the case of Visual C applications (for, say, MFC, or the STL), or VB. .NET applications require a huge library to work, but since many apps use .NET its often able to be shared among those apps. Java as well requires the JRE. LabView's Runtime requires a special library as well, which is also huge, and lacks DAQFactory's ability to switch to development mode on the fly (or at all really without a full LabView install). Programs that actually create standalone executables typically just link the special library into the customer application, creating a gigantic executable. There are some apps that will run standalone without any other libraries, but these are almost always written in pure C or C++.
