I need to be able to use BW9 in classroom settings without using my laptop. Is it possible to copy BW9 to a flashdrive and run it from a flashdrive? I could take out all the NT ms images and that would greatly reduce the size.

When I tried doing this by simply copying BW9 from my "Program Files" on my C: drive to the flashdrive, I can't get it to run (probably because parts of the application are written to expect certain files in specific folders where it was installed). Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance.

I think that some operating systems allow you to install programs directly to the flash drive, if so, that would solve your problem. As for the image files of NT ms, a larger flash drive may support this install as well. I have at present a 32 GB flash Drive that would be adequate for that kind of installation.

Thanks. I've thought about doing that... but on some computers I have to use, the flashdrive comes up as the E: drive... but on others as the I: drive... or something else. I'm afraid BW will only install and then run with only one specific identification as the flashdrive.
