I transferred my Adobe Flash CS6 installation to my USB drive since I needed to save space on my computer. All of a sudden it won't start. The splash screen comes up but then it just quits. Any way to fix this?

AFAIK, legacy Creative Suite software NEVER worked from externals or USB drives. The software relies on your primary drive's operating system to work properly.  If you don't have enough empty hard disk space, remove non-essential software and put your data files on externals until you can afford a bigger computer.

Also... installing a program makes required entries in the Windows system registry... and you broke those entries when you moved to a flash drive
