I have a lot of fully legal software i use daily if i wanted to make them portable
say sas is that legal?
That would depend primarily on the license and its restrictions.
For example Dreamweaver allows you to use one license but install it on a Home AND a Work computer. So I have it install my Home computer and on my usb flash drive with a launcher.
If the license only allows it to be installed on a single computer and you make it portable but do not uninstall it from your home computer, you are violating the license when you run it on another computer.
To put it simply, you can legally make it portable if you uninstall it from your computer and only use the portable copy. Anything else would depend on the license.
For those who have fought for it, freedom has a flavor the protected will never know.

Now to figure how to make SAS portable lol .
I know ill need a launcher for the Reg .
You know of anyone who has made it portable already?
or even SPSS ? Wife is a statistician and is screaming to make it portable.
Iv got her hooked on portable apps she wants all our software portable.
What is SAS? SPSS?
Wife uses it for statistics always complains about not having it with her when she needs it.
little over my head trying to make it portable
im use to designing Data bases Work flows and programming in MEL and Crystal.
I have to Say im real impressed with your stuff if you need more storage space let me know i have about 300 gigs of storage at extremely fast downloads.
You must be looking at the wrong website LOL.
I've only written a couple of small "utility" apps.
The real impressive stuff is the applications here and the work being done to make them portable.
The other stuff is impressive also but your menu is the best out. now i just have to find as many portable apps as i can lol i figure some way to make some of her apps portable... what part of the country did you settle in ? some how i settled in SC.
was in AZ for while but my consulting took me here look like for perm.
I think you have me confused with John.
Sorry, my fault, the topic was "Questions for John" just figured he is really busy with the portable apps and such so I would give you an answer.
Anyway I settled in NJ and can't wait to leave LOL.
Still a brother in arms..........
Yeah been there before ran away screaming..... lol
AZ was real nice still growing tech wise. latest Hot thing is medical
creating electronic medical forms for hospitals costs about 1,500 to get the software to program in it then your set to go.
Its nice to see some one else leave the service and end up in the tech field.
Yea wanted to get into the "tech" field while I was in the service.
But you know how that story goes with what the recruiters tell you
went into Air Sea Rescue Some how ended up in spec ops.
Recruiters love to lie.
I use both three programs, they are closed source, in fact, SAS have different kind of licenses (one to many computers)... but the fact is that the registry of that program have an expiration date (you have to re-register every year)... there is no way to make it portable.
I have been checking for SPSS, it looks like it have the same problem.
May be statistix, because it's freeware could be "adapted" to run on portable...
I don't have a signature
Should I have a signature?
If a packet hits a pocket on a socket on a port,
and the bus is interrupted as a very last resort,
and the address of the memory makes your floppy disk abort,
then the socket packet pocket has an error to report
SPSS just changed the way they license the program. On older version numbers you could use the program for as long as you wanted. SPSS upgrades their software on an annual basis, but I've been able to defer upgrading for several years with no problems.
It would be an interesting project to install it to a portable hard drive...I think, though, the program's too tightly tied into the registry to succeed.
Registry isnt that bad on it.I have 9 thru 14 and Lic for them all and lic for All SAS STAT and Add ons for many computers. Just Realized I spend way to much on software.
Load SPSS & SAS on your wife's laptop & charge her business account for support. That's what I've done with SPSS. While SPSS has a good selection of licenses, I don't think they're ready for USB portability.
Talk with one of their sales people...the question will give the programmers & lawyers something to think about.
and 4 work stations not going to put it on usb drive putting it on 2 WD passport 160
that way speed is not an issue with it loading usb drives are slower than the micro hard drives but yeah i could take a day trip up to duke and talk it over with sas
