It should work from memory from a portable installation but the actual
program 'settings' are stored in the registry.

Your actual registration key is stored in a file in the program directory.

The location of all registry keys I could find was
hkey_current_user\software\nbos software\the fractual mapper 8\

None of which seem to be anything more then settings and plugin etc info..

Which honestly Ed why are we storing in the registry and not in a xml
settings file some where?

Subject: [nbos] [FM8] Portable Install?

Is it possible to install and run the NBOS software on/from a portable
harddrive? Or even thumbdrive? I am starting to getting my file structure
back to how I want it and don't want to lose it again and/or keep going
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.
