I am going to install CS5.5 Design Premium on my computer but I wanted to ask if I could install it on an external hard drive.
My purpose is just saving the programs on it, not using the programs on the computers I want by connecting the hard drive.
Is this possible?
Thanks for your quick answer,
First of all, I am using Windows Vista.
I want to use programs from the external drive if it is possible. I just wanted to say that my purpose isn' t connecting the drive to different computers and using the programs on them too.
Yes, it's possible, but you have to make sure that
a) your drive is detected as a fixed drive as if it were built-in
b) you do not change any of the configuration afterward
The installer otherwise will refuse to install on removable media and changing e.g. the drive letter later will render the whole install defunct.
I dont know in which perspective Mylenium said it's possible...Would love to know it....If mylenium can explain
You said that you want to use your external drive to use the software on different computers and use the program,
In my point if view, this certainly cannot be done because there are lot of licensing files , database files, and registry entries made on the local drive , which cannot be moved to different computer , you will be moving the program but not the files to run it.
I installed the software on my E:\ drive and it worked fine but then I have to format the C:\ , and then when I tried to open teh application from the E"\ , it gave me the error , so I beleieve some native files do remain on computer to properly run the application
