MojoPac is a sort of emulator software that runs on top of windows to allow executing programs from removable media without requiring to install them on the desktop machine.

They showcase how well this works for games, Office and such.

It seems that the company was recently acquired and the new owners decided to release it for free.

Any volunteer to check out if this works from a PE environment?

I don't quite get your drift.
Mojopack runs straight form a CD without the need for a PE.

But good news to hear that it's now free.

For the record, it has been free for personal use since a long time:

https://www.mojopac....nouncements.jsp

MojoPac Freedom is *free* for non-commercial personal use.


On the download page:
http://www.mojopac.com/download.html
there is still a link to the "old" Mojopac 1.8 Freedom:

and to the "new" 2.0 Free:

I tested it few weeks ago. It has to be compared with VMware's ThinApp (aka Thinstall) or portable applications.

After installation, on your USB key/HDD you will have the 3 small directories: Documents and Settings, Program Files and Windows. It is a kind of switch user under XP.

- The initialization time is rather long, 3-4 minutes (in comparison to launch ThinApp application) before getting the Mojopac desktop.
- It has problem if your system drive not being C: (as mine which is F:). Some system fonts are changed on the host (this is very bad).
- It has limited or no access to host resources.

After some experimentations, I prefer true portable applications (speed, no limited access...) than Mojopac.

Thanks for the 2.0. I tested the older version. 2.0 was not freeware at the time.

well, i recently also tried Mojopac and another one(i will mention later).
first, the initilaization is really a problem. it takes up the whole screen and it lasts several minuites. all you can do is just waiting.

second, i encouter the same problem when i first install it on drive E(my host system dirve is C ). it refuses to work. just a blank screen. as for fonts, not yet meet with.

third, limited access. and plus, you have to gain administer rights to use on other computers. this is also not good.

however, in terms of "portable" and"independant system", i think it already has done better than ceedo, u3.

Yet, i also find another gem of such kind, maybe even better than Mojopac seemingly at least. it is much less noticed, which is named Prayaya V3.
first as for setup and login time, it is faster and more friendly. it doesnot cover up your whole screen and login generally finishes within 10 seconds.

second, i installed it on drive E and drive C and USB, it does not have any problem to run. and no other strange things happen.

third, this one called prayaya can be used on computer as an guest. no administer rights needed. this is really a plus.

However, this one claims to be compatible with all windows software and almost all can be installed directly. it is not that true. some professional designers will not do, like Coreldraw, Photoshop etc.

yet i think it is encouraging that we will have more choice and we have better expectations.

Yep :), but I can see EXACTLY 49 reasons that make a difference:

I rather pay for something that works good, instead of getting for free something that works bad. :(
