[.net] .NET runtimes on USB flash

Recommended Posts

Is it possible to install the .NET runtimes on a USB flash drive? Ideally I'd like to run an application on the flash drive, and have it reference the .NET runtimes on the flash drive, so they don't have to be installed on the host machine. As far as I know, it's impossible, but I heard it can be done with Java, and wondered if there is a similar mechanisim for .NET

You might be able to do it with Mono. On this page, under the "Why support Windows..." heading, they suggest that Mono can be deployed via just copying the directory, so it might be true that you could install Mono to the flash drive, and use a batch file to run "mono myapp.exe" off of the flash drive. But I don't know f this would work, and getting your application to work with Mono may present difficulties of you use many of the new features in System.Windows.Forms in 2.0.
