Access 2000 on a Flash Drive

P: n/a

Is it possible to install 2000 on a flash drive and then use the drive on a
laptop that only has 97 installed? I am not allowed to install 2000 on the
laptop, but I want to be able to do work with the 2000 .

Nope. There is more to running most Windows programs then just having access to a
folder with all of the files. Installation of Access 2000 probably makes hundreds of
registry entries and adds files to various system folders as well as to the "Office"
folder that would be on your flash drive. Your laptop would not have any of those
things.
