Run iTunes from portable USB drive?
Is there any way to run iTunes from a portable drive? Not just move the library, but actually run the program from there? I will be visiting family in another state for a couple of weeks next month, and I've been looking for a way to still be able to sync my phone while I'm away, and to have a way to restore/re-jb if anything happens to the phone. Closest I've found is this:
» Run iTunes on a USB Drive or USB Stick
from a few years ago, but I'd imagine it's probably out of date and wouldn't work with a current iTunes.

even if you could, the main problem is all the registry information will be stored on the physical hard drive of whatever computer you use to install it to the hard drive. when you move the thumb drive to another computer, even though all the files for the program are on the thumb drive, that computer will not have the registry files to run the program correctly.
