Can I Copy Microsoft Word to a Flash Drive to Install on Another Laptop

"I want to transfer my Microsoft Word program from one laptop to another. Can this be done on a flash drive? What's the correct way to put the Microsoft Word on a flash drive?"

I believe that many people are considering transferring Microsoft Office program from their computer to a USB flash drive, expecting that the program would be running in the same way on another computer. What's the result? Will copy and paste your Microsoft Office program files on a flash drive work? I'm afraid not. Missing the entries in Windows Registry, the application won't even set up in a different location.
