    what exactly constitutes a portable USB app?

    Most applications can be run from a flash disk (even if you do have to fake the registry file).

    However, software that creates virtual drives usually do so by implementing low level hardware hooks on the system, so even if you can run the app from the flash disk you will still need to go through the install process on each machine you want to use it on to set that up.

    If you are interested in how these programs emulate drives you can read more here:
