Additionally every time I need to capture screens from a
different application I have to reinstall everything again because
we have to use a different PC.
Anyone can help me and tell me if there is any way to run
captivate capture functionality (or any other application) from a
CD without installing anything in the PC?.

(using Print Screen) would not work, so probably not the best
