MPLAB on USB flash drive

Im just curious, has anyone installed MPLAB on a USB flash drive and been able to run it from there? I’ve been trying for a few days, I just wanna know if it’s possible. Any feedback would be much appreciated.

I believe that MPLAB installs some DLL’s to the system directory. Did you get MPLAB to attempt to run? If so, it hopefully would tell you what’s missing. If not, maybe a dependancy walker could help you figure out what’s missing.

I also believe that MPLAB may use the registry to store toolkit paths and such.

Basically, no. MPLAB won’t work so well. But the MCC18 compiler should work fine.

Iv got the compiler to run from the flash drive, but cant run it without the registry keys. I guess that answers my question, thanks guys.
