Its likely you'll have issues with the registry. If your app stores is configuration in an XML file in its own directory like I believe Filezilla can then you might be able to.

First off it won't regsiter properly. VISTA and XP have seperate registries. Simple app's (no rigistration required, limited files) will run. You will need to manually setup ShortCuts with file locations and execution folders.

You will also run into permissions problems. Setup and data files will need to be in a public (shared) folder.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.
