Install on pendrive

I would like to install musescore on a pen drive but the installation does not let me do so. Is there anyway round thus limitation. I recall that previous versions could be installed on a pen drive.


You could install ubuntu studio on a pen drive, boot from it and you have a self-contained OS + MuseScore + other audiovisual applications.

Another possibility is to download a nightly build, which is a ZIP file, then extract it to the pen drive. You should be able to run the "nightly.bat" file from there without further installation.

True enough. The importance of that depends on one's reason for wanting this I guess. For me I do this sort of thing just as a convenience to access a particular version of MuseScore (like a nightly build!) on some computer where it isn't normally installed, and I don't really care if it creates a Score folder and stores preferences there or not.
