Subject: install to CD drive, access error

I'm using matlab from a 486, with a smallish hard drive. I would like to
run matlab from a CD instead of from the hard drive. I can do this from
a CD recording drive (by installing it directly onto the CD), but cannot
from a read only CD drive (many access errors occur). It seems as though
Matlab needs to write to the program directories in order to run
properly. Can I redirect where Matlab is writing this information?
Running matlab from a CD is very convenient for me, however writing to
the CD is unbearably slow. Or, is there any other way to run Matlab from
a CD?

Thanks,

This would be quite useful. I'd like use Matlab on another PC
(ie. to demonstrate something) without having to install Matlab
on another PC and uninstall when I'm done.

It'd be nice to be able to put both Matlab and my p-code on a CDR
and run the whole thing from a regular CD.

At my department we run Matlab from a read-only network drive without
any problems. After installation on the drive it was possible to run
matlab.exe from any PC without any local install (not even some settings
in the registry and search path). One possible problem I can think of is
that you have no network license and that matlab checks whether it is
started on the same PC where it was originally installed (we have
floating network licenses).

Hope this helps,
