    I've got a 160gb portable hard drive, If i install dreamweaver on this can I then connect it too my computer at work and run dreamweaver off it?

    Or will it cause problems?

    problems. When installing a program there are multiple entries made int he registry and if they aren't found by the program you're running, most of the time it will not start.

    This is 100% true, though you can search around on the internet as there are a lot of "portable" apps that are meant to run from USB drives... I use a Portable Firefox, Thunderbird, GAIM, etc.

    I think I once read about a portable Dreamweaver, but maybe it was a request, and not something being developed on....

    He said NOTHING of using it on multiple machines. It will work fine on the machine it's installed with.

    It would appear that he's installing it one place and then connecting the drive to his work computer. Pretty clear he's talking about two computers.

    whatever you do, don't let peyomp convince you to buy a macbook, purchase a copy of windows and use that instead of your office PC.

    He should be in here shortly to suggest the above.
