Alrighty, I realize this probably seems like a bit of a weird question, but is there any way I can install a compiler (Dev-C++) to a CD so that it can be run without having to be installed?
Ok let me explain my situation: I am in a programming self-study at school and unfortunately the only computers available are either macs or they’re PCs locked down with a program called Deep Freeze. I understand why they did that and it’s fine, it just makes it to where I can’t install a compiler…and in a programming self-study that makes for a interesting problem. I would like to know if it’s possible to install Dev-C++ onto a CD somehow so that I can bring it to school and use it to work on the computers there. As of right now i’ve gotta program in notepad and send the source back and forth to compile at home. This makes it very hard to get things done as I can’t compile and debug programs at school. The librarians are fine with me using the computers for whatever, I just can’t install anything due to Deep Freeze (which by the way resets the hard drive to a particular image every time you reboot).
Once I get a chance i’m going to try to install Dev-C++ to a folder and then burn that to a CD and see if it works…but I don’t really have time at the moment. Just thought i’d ask and see what you guys think. Can it work or not?
