Hi all,

Sorry not sure if right for this forum but assume you guys will have the
technical kmnowledge.

If I install a pc game on a USB external hard drive will I be able to take
the hard drive away and use it on other machines and play the game?

I've pondered this and am not sure - the other pc/laptop will be same os.

Since your system has to be configured to run certain software, it will most
likely not work to only move the folder with the software to another pc.

Nowadays less and less likely. Depends entirely on the game. Many write

You would have to plug the hard drive into the other system, then install
the game, pointing the installation to where you have the game installed on
the usb drive.

Then there's the problem with save games etc
