Yes. You can take the editor and files with you. Firstly, copy the file path onto your folder:

C:Program FilesUnity

Then, copy the directory for your project. You should know where you save that, usually in the Documents.

After that run Unity.exe (or something similar on Mac) from the "Editor" directory.

This will start up Unity and have all your scripts there. Best thing, it doesn't install a thing. It'll run all the stuff from the flash drive, and save it to the flash drive. You can always put it in, check your game, then go somewhere else.

Is there a licensing issue with that? (maybe not the free version). I'd personally check with UT first on that.

@Cyclops - Probably not, since you're reproducing it for a non-profit, non-shared, use. You're just using the product on a separate drive. This should be allowed in the licensing, since you're not breaking laws or anything.

Word of warning, back up your flash drive if you save anything of any importance on it!! My flashdrive just broke, and I would have lost my entire unity project if had not had it backed up!

Does it install registry files? I think it will.

Im not sure if it will run on a different computer because the registry files are installed on the computer you installed it on. As long as you use it on the same PC, you should be fine.

Am i able to install Unity3d onto my portable device(mobile phone), and use it where ever i want whenever i can, without having it installed on any computer at all? I've selected to install it on my device, but it still installed it on the computer but put the maps onto my device. I still can't run the program on another computer :(
