Did anybody try to run GreatNews off a USB memory stick or even a U3 compliant memory stick ?

I'm pretty sure GreatNews runs in a flash drive. Some user created some wrap package for U3, but I don't have a U3 to test.

I run GreatNews from my U3.

I use the zipped version of GreatNews and have it located on the data drive root folder. I then used SmithTech Shortcut Creator 4U3 ( http://usb.smithtech.us/projects/shortcut_creator.php ) to create a shortcut on the the U3 Launchpad menu to execute the program.

All runs smooth without a hitch.

It runs fine from a U3 stick, I'm using it for a long while now:
The package is available here:
http://www.xs4all.nl/~starf0x/U3-Apps/GreatNews.u3p

This is not a shortcut, but the real thing, you can open the package with Winzip to see what's in there, and if a new version is released then replace those files, and it continues with the new version.

Have Fun, Starf0x

I was very curious to try the Starf0x solution but the link no longer works?

I run GreatNews off of a Sandisk Cruizer. It was originally U3, but it was such a pain in the butt, I wiped the U3 stuff off and installed PortableApps.

It works perfectly under PortableApps. There is a process to make an install package, but I haven't gotten into that yet.

It works for me.
