I'm using WinXP Pro, and want to load 'portable' programs on a flash drive. I installed the portable applications on my drive following instructions. Some of the applications yielded a free standing executable that worked as I expected. Others installed folders contining an executable file, drivers, etc. The drive assignments vary from computer to computer, so the folders can't always be accessed. This wouldn't be a problem if there was a way to permanently assign drive Z to the flash drive.
I thought 'portable' meant that an application could be moved to different (Windows) computers, and still work.. Apparently it means not in the registry. I don't like the suites, because they don't contain the diferent applications I want.
I'd appreciate any help anyone can give me.
