Re: [nbos] [FM8] Portable Install?

I haven't checked FM8, but most Windows software depends on information
stored on the Windows registry.
If this is not the case, then you should be able to do as you say.
If indeed FM8 depends on registry information, then you'll need to either
have that information ready in a .reg file to add it to every computer
where you run it. An alternative (which would also work better, though it's
really expensive) would be to create a portable version using something
like VMWare ThinApp.

I'd say you give your method a try, else consider something like ThinApp.

through this when I have to do a reformat or move to a new computer. Can I
just select the NBOS folder and drag it to whatever drive I want to use? If
this is possible, is there any significant issues that I should be aware
of? Other than having to reset all of my desktop shortcuts, that is.
