MojoPac - http://www.mojopac.com/

Check out the audio and there site to check out there video about this thing.

Here is the audio from a show that talks about MojoPac


Leo and I get deeply into the new MojoPac product from RingCube Technologies. After spending several days plumbing the depths of this intriguing new idea for installing secure and private Windows program and file installations onto transportable USB devices, I tell all about what I found and what I believe it means now and in the future.



Transform any portable storage device into your secure, personal computer.
pick ANY Device
MojoPac can turn any USB 2.0 compliant portable storage device, including your iPod, or your USB flash or hard drives, into your Personal Computer - your MojoPac PC.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

run ANY Application
You can install any of the most popular Windows applications on your MojoPac PC. You can use the same version of the applications you use daily at work (such as Microsoft Office) or at home (such as Photoshop, iTunes, IM and Games).

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

use ANY PC
With MojoPac, you can go to any Windows XP computer, plug in your MojoPac device, and bring up your MojoPac PC. The experience is exactly as if you are logging into your Personal Computer, complete with your desktop, shortcuts, applications and preferences.
*** Free Microsoft Vista support coming Q2 2007 for all current customers.



Original Topic from where I heard it first about this program is from Nuno Post.

I think the same result could be done with the VMWare Player and a custom VMM. You could configure the VMM settings to use the existing hard drive but do not save changes to the partition. Next, you could make a hard drive image with your favorite portable apps. So, when you run VMWare Player you'd see the current system with an extra drive with your portable apps.

..or, you could just run the portable apps directly from your USB flash stick :cheers:

Don't think I'll shell out money for this. You need administrator rights to use this on someones PC. Not quite portable :cheers:

Moon Goon, it's a little bit more complicated as MojoPac also has to have a own registry. After all you can install and use any software not just the one intended for portable use.
And that registry has to be blended with the one on the host system.
I presume MojoPac is basicly a roaming user. You know, the way you can lock on to your account in big businesses, on any computer.
The only draw back that i see is, besides that it's not free :cheers: , is that you need to use an usb HD, an USB-Stick would die too fast.

No I didnt see those other posts before. I just found it when Nuno mentioned it one of the threads about thinstall.

At this time you can download the program without having to sign up.
The time of usage of the program is either 30 days or a lot more then 60 boots.
