    I think this was discussed several years ago, but this type of information gets obsolete very quickly.

    Wondering if anybody managed to set up the EU client as a portable install, e.g. something which can be run from an external HDD and moved from one PC to another. Any ideas or suggestions in this respect? Thank you.

    Take care,

    Presume your PC has met all the requirement.

    Normal installation has two folders as follow;

    C:\Program Files (x86)\Entropia Universe
    C:\ProgramData\entropia universe\public_users_data

    Merge those two folders to "D:\pro\eu" (can be any drive/folder)

    So you want to run Entropia from "D:\pro\eu"; should have files and folders as follow;

    D:\pro\eu\bin32
    D:\pro\eu\bin64
    D:\pro\eu\out
    D:\pro\eu\program_data
    D:\pro\eu\public_users_data
    D:\pro\eu\redist
    D:\pro\eu\Uninstall
    D:\pro\eu\uninstall.exe
    D:\pro\eu\version.txt

    Backup registry.

    Remove registry string(s) "PublicUsersDataParentFolder"

    Normally they are at;

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\MindArk\Entropia Universe
    PublicUsersDataParentFolder (C:\ProgramData\entropia universe)

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\MinArk\Ent ropia Universe
    PublicUsersDataParentFolder (C:\ProgramData\entropia universe)

    To run entropia without checking updates;
    D:\pro\eu\bin32\Entropia.exe --run
    or
    D:\pro\eu\bin64\Entropia.exe --run

    Above is working for me, if not for you, may try to change "PublicUsersDataParentFolder" instead of removing.

    The word "install" in the thread title is problematic. What makes an application portable is that it doesn't have to be installed at all (the link you provided says that as well). Take Rufus for example:

    https://rufus.ie

    If you download the portable application, there is no installer; you just click the EXE and it runs. There are no registry keys or anything messy like that.

    That is how a portable application works. I haven't heard of this being done with EU but I can't say for sure it hasn't been.

    Any type of remote desktop program, Chrome Remote Desktop works fine and is free. Movement and commands take quite some getting used to having to use on screen action keys only though
