Can Unreal engine 4 be run off of a portable hard drive? -- didn't know where to ask

So Can Unreal engine 4 be run off of a portable hard drive?

My college wont install it; so i’m wondering if it can be done.

Take a look at this thread :slight_smile: https://forums.unrealengine.com/showthread.php?49380-Installing-Unreal-Engine-4-on-USB-drive-or-portable-HDD

"For a USB stick. I wouldn’t recommend it. It would be slow and may not even run right. Now if you used a portable HDD( Any HDD an be portable) or a SSD. It would run faster. but would still have to pass through USB port and may still cause problems. But either way it can be done. Jut not as efficient as if it were installed on the PC. "

"In regards to USB installing, I’m pretty sure because of all the dependencies that Unreal Engine relies it that it will probably not work as a Portable executable but don’t quote me on that - I could be very wrong indeed! "

Thanks for your response, will see how well it runs in my next lesson.

If it doesn’t run too well I will be strapping my pc to my back :stuck_out_tongue:
