Many years ago, when ROOTS III was at top-of-the line, and I did not have a notebook computer, I would travel with my ROOTS III program and database on a couple of floppy disks. At destination I would copy the program and
database onto a desktop computer and play back the ROOTS III data, edit it, add to it, etc, etc, as if I was playing the original program and database on my home desktop computer.

My naive question is: Can I copy my UFT program and database from C:\UFT onto a Thumb Drive or other version of pocketable external drive, and then play it back, edit it, add to it, etc, in a desktop computer remote from home, across the room or nation. I am aware that in the case of many (probably most) modern computer programs -- when they are installed from their original media, they make changes in the Registry, and that such changes might not be possible by simple DOS copying. What about UFT? I will appreciate any comments.
Thanks.
