View Full Version : HEM on external hard drive

07-20-2011, 04:50 PM
Is there any possibility to install holdem manager on my external hard drive? I have a laptop which is not mine but from the office and technically I am not allowed to install it there. Also I wouldn't like to spend 90$ for the software and then lose the license once I return the laptop to my boss.

Please give me some thoughts or solutions on this issue, I'd really appreciate

During the installation of Holdemmanager you can choose the installation folder but our standard installer installs the postgresql database server always to the default location on c:\.
So if you want to have the database on the external HDD too you need to download and install Postgresql 8.4 from PostgreSQL: The world's most advanced open source database (http://www.postgresql.org) and choose the external HDD during the installation too.

When you have to return the Laptop you need to install HM and the database on a new computer http://faq.holdemmanager.com/questions/372/Reinstalling+on+a+new+PC+-+Backup+Tips
Our license system allows such a change.
