Install Modo on a USB 'Key' (Windows)
Create a Modo directory on your USB stick. I advise doing this rather that just copying the Modo over directly because if you've got all the content and video files installed, it's going to be very large - mine is 3.99 Gb I was using a 2Gb key, so I opted to leave all the video content off, but copy the rest of help and user guide documentation
Copy everything except the Content and Documentation directories from the root of the Modo install directory on your hard drive to the Modo directory on thr USB Key. If your key is large enough (and you want it) copy over the Content directory too (the default content directory is about 550Mb in size.
Create a Documentation directory (if you want the documentation too) and Help directory inside that. Copy everything except the pages directory from the Documantation\Help Directory of the main Modo install to the Documentation\Help directory on the USB key.
Create a Pages directory in Documentation\Help on the USB key and copy over everything except the clips and Video directories from the Documentation\Help\Pages directory of the main Modo install. If you want the clips directory and your key is large enough, copy that over - it's 500Mb in size.
Create a shortcut in the root of the USB key to the Modo executable in the Modo directory on the Key. Right click on the shortcut icon and select 'Properties'. In the box that says 'Target' add a space after modo.exe an then type:
do not add anything after -license: that will make Modo look in the directory it's being launched from for the license file. Click OK to close the dialog.
Copy your Modo license, user config file, Configs directory and Scripts directory into the Modo directory on the USB key. These are in C:\Documents and Settings\Your User Name
Open the MODO201.CFG file on the USB key and edit the two lines at the top of the file that look like this:
and remove the user: part so that they look like this:
Save the file.
Double click on the Modo shortcut you created in the root of the USB key to start Modo. Select Preferences from the System Menu and in the Input/Remapping section, edit the Help Directory so that it says:
Close the preferences window and close Modo. That's it, done, you now have a Modo install which will run completely stand-alone off the USB key. If you wish you can copy the shortcut on the USB key to the desktop of the machine you are running it on.
