Summary0000332: Portable version of DBWB
DescriptionBeing a roadwarrior I need to connect to customer's databases all the time. Often I can get access to the network, however, I am not allowed (nor do I want to ) install new software on their systems.
Would very much like DBWB to have a portable mode where it is installed on a USB stick and where it can run from the stick. (This could be a secured device).
Currently I find myself installing DBWB on client machines because I need to do DB compares, and then uninstalling it afterwards.
Moving the databases to my laptop is not an option.
TagsNo tags attached.

Hello Johann,

Besides installing this software on their machines, are you not allowed to connect your laptop to the network in order to connect to their databases?

No.. Normal procedures are that we cannot connect to the network. In some occassions I can connect to internet, but that is always in a DMZ. So an ideal solution would be an install free system on a USB key.
There are software protection schemes like Aladdin (I believe) that allow you to connect software to the USB key. That would protect your interest.
