    Hello. I'm looking for a way to make microsoft office portable, capable of running from it's own folder launched from anywhere (network share, usb etc.) I know I can do it via ThinApp and Spoon Studio but I'm looking for a more native way, without using a 3rd party app.
    From what I know, based on my own testing is that copying the entire installed suite from Program Files does not work on another computer.

    There were, but one would need to include KMS activator in such virtualized package.
    There is/was such discussion in Virtualization section

    But I don't get: if I do actually make it in ThinApp, why would you need a KMS? I mean all traces are removed when closing the program. Wouldn't it run always at 90 days grace period?
