Default Running a program from a external drive

Hi could anyone tell me if its possible to run a program from a external drive ?
i.e i have family tree maker program but i dont really want to put it on my laptop so would it run on a external drive without actually installing it on my windows laptop ?

You can do that with portable versions of programs but for that program you would have to try it and see.

If that isn't a portable version then Google for portable versions of family tree maker programs and you'll see a few links - I don't know if your program is a paid for program, but if you look into it, it may have a portable version.
