The Adobe install will NOT install to a removable drive... as it should NOT, since doing so will break the system registry and cause problems with the drive is removed

Thanks... but let me rephrase my original question.... Can I install and use Photoshop Elements 15 on a USB flash drive and use it on one or two machines?  I'm basically asking if it must reside on the primary hard drive or not.
