    running anki without installing it has been discussed many times - in this forum and other places. This is not officially supported but there are multiple reports that it works for users. You could start with a search of this forum for "portable windows" or "Running from Flash drive". I guess it's better to get the answers in context than just a few lines here. This has also been discussed multiple times in the anki subreddit.

    this is a community section. I'm just a regular user. I can't close (but you can).

    Before you do: Does it work?

    If not:

    • Which guide do you use?
    • Which steps did you take?
    • Where exactly do you fail or get unexpected results. Any error messages?

    I did not try yet: I'm teacher and the new school year is beginning. If
    there were a straight forward solution I would have use it with wy student.
    There I will have to seek and test, so I plan to do it on my next holiday.

    I will respond here if a good solution comes up.

    Thank's a lot for the link. Starting from there, the IT could find an
    package designed for opsi software installation that is official and
    allowed to be installed. So I did not try the instruction in the manual.

    I propose to leave your post here to inform others.

    Have a nice day
