Hello,

I couldn't find any information to this question. So I wanna post this here:

I'd like to install PersonalBrain Pro on a USB drive (U3). Unfortunately, my office computer has an older Java virtual machine installed (1.4) than my home computer. How can I request PersonalBrain to use the Java runtime environment of my USB drive instead of the hosts installed one?

I have seen discussions about the INSTALL4J_JAVA_HOME environment variable, but don't know how to set it on the USB drive because the USB drive letter may change from machine to machine.
Also, do I need to install the installer image of PersonalBrain to the USB drive or could I just copy the *.zip version onto the USB drive? The *.zip version starts from the USB drive but of course still uses the hosts installed Java runtime environment.


Best regards,
Logan

Good luck -- I've been unable to accomplish this without using a much older version of PB on the thumbdrive (one that isn't so dependent on the latest Java version, apparently) -- if you find a more suitable workaround to this, please pass it on! Basically, my best option now is bringing my personal laptop with me - everywhere.

Hi newguy,

bringing in a private laptop is not allowed in every componay.

newguy: How did you do your set up with a much older version of PB?

Best regards,
Logan

I hear you there -- the personal laptop issue aside (strange that one can't use a personal laptop at work, but bring in all the thumbdrives you want..? But I digress...), I used an earlier v4.x incarnation of PB that still worked with some older Java versions. 

When prompted for location during install, I just set it to a folder on the thumbdrive. It runs just fine off the drive (my brain's not very big? -- no better way to say that...) and it has really revolutionized the way I can visualize/process information at work.

Logan and NewGuy,

Good evening to you both.

Please look in the following post http://forums.thebrain.com/post?id=5042085 for some information on this topic if you are still in need for this matter to be answered.  I know it has been over two years since the question was asked but I thought I would offer what information I have.  Hopefully, the moderators/developers will answer with good news.

Thank you for your time and attention.

Sincerely,

NeoBrain
