Can I install CS5.5 Design Premium on an external hard drive?

Hi,

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.

    Bit confused from the last statement .......

     

    You want to use the program from external drive or from your hard drive.

     

    Also can you let us know your OS?

    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
