Run Open Sim on a thumb drive.
OpenSim is a great way to
create your own avatar and build
your own 3-D Second Life™ compatible world. And
you don't really need to install a thing! Just copy and click!
It's ideal for use while flying or traveling or anywhere you
don't have a decent network connection, or for any number of other
circumstances. You could use it in schools or at work, too.
Thanks to Christa Lopez and Robert Stack, now you can make it truly portable by running OpenSim off a thumb drive. It also works on your hard drive, too.
4 sim zip file (149 mb) for 4 sims with viewer

How to Install
You install by copying the files to a your thumb drive or a folder on your hard
disk.Just click and drag the folder from the zip file to yourdrive.
You should end up with a folder called 'simonastick_4sim' when you examine your copied and unzipped files.
1) Launch mowes.exe first. You should get a screen like this. If
it does not work, shut down Skype as it is known to interfere, and try again.
2) Launch simonastick_4sim/diva-r(SOME RELEASE#)/bin/opesim.exe for 32 bit machines
or simonastick_4sim/diva-r(SOME RELEASE#)/bin/OpenSim.32BitLaunch.exe if on a 64 bit machine.
A DOS prompt will open and load OpenSim:
3) Launch simonastick_4sim\Imprudence\Imprudence.exe to bring up the 3-D viewer.
From your viewer, select localhost (in the Grid Manager). You can
also use the viewer to connect any of the other grids, including Second Life.
