ms-office 2003/2007 run from usb

Recommended Posts

hello!

it might not be legitimate to do so but i would like to know if it would be possible to run ms-office from a usb key? we currently face a big productivity concern in our workplace as they are pulling-out licensed ms-office applications in exchange for engaging more with other employees (rather than be stuck in workstations while working on some admin & ad-hoc deliverables). as such, for those (myself included) who cannot live without ms-office, efficiency in terms of deliverables will certainly experience major down time. openoffice has been installed too but users prefer ms-office (ms-outlook too rather than use webmail where tables cannot be pasted, among other constraints). as such, we're wondering if we could install our personal ms-office (licensed) and run it via usb key or external hard drive. is this doable?

cheers!

is this doable?

Technically, yes.

There are several approaches to it.

If you are going to use your "personal" MS-Office on a USB device always on the same computer, just install it on the USB stick.

Otherwise you may want to use some "ad-hoc" programs, like thinapp, pravaya V3 and similar ones.
