I'm asking if it is possible to have GameMaker in a usb drive, ready to go.
I'd like to have GM with me instead of carrying my laptop, because at work I can dedicate some time to myself (obviously after all work is done). Registered or unregistered is of no consequence, as I have it already installed in my desktop and laptop.

Just for a prototyping environment, I think unregistered would suffice.

By "ready to go" you mean ready to install? Sure.

But I don't know how you could run GM from the USB drive... without installing it on a computer.

Either way, if you only need the unregistered version (as you said), then why not just install GM:Lite on your computer at work? (Unless there's a company restriction on that.)

Though there's some lenience towards software installs, the convenience in having it in a USB pen would be nice. Either way, I'll try it next monday and post results.

You can have gm run from a usb flash drive but it won't retain pro version. It will be the lite edition, at least it was the last time I tried it.

Another option is LateralGM.
Upsides: Very portable, sits in 1 file (lgm.jar). Cross-platform. Can save/load different versions of GM (can even load GM8 games and save them as GM6).
Downsides: Requires Java. Cannot run the game. Unofficial (not affiliated with Yoyogames).

Yh, you can just run it off a usb stick however any pc you use it on, if you want pro you need to re-enter the activation key on that computer, once you do it, it will still active on that pc. (i do this for school, if ever i want to use Gm at school sometimes).

Hey if it's working for you great.

But you do realise that this is against the EULA, and by doing a lot of re-registering of your activation key you are exposing yourself to black-listing of your activation key.
