Anyone have experience running VGAP on a USB Key?

I know there is a program that lets you run VGAP on a USB thumb drive, presumably so you can play at work, and not mess up the company computer. Does anyone have experience with that? Does it work?

It works just fine. I've played many a game of VGAP on my lunch break.

are there any instructions?
How do I make the USB VGAP look like the one on my computer?

I ran VGAP on a usb drive for a long time. I just copied the plan1 folder to the USB drive and ran VGAP using VPA. I'm not sure if it works with winplan but VPA worked great for me.

Just don't get fired for playing at work. :D

Only problem will be that Echoview uses some things setup in the registry of the PC. You will have to setup the game in Echoview on each new PC that you want to use Echoview on. Winplan, VPA, JVC and PCC should all be fine (I suggest you try and keep the same drive letter for the USB drive though).

Same here. I used VPA. No problems at all. Just call it up through a DOS prompt or make a batch file.

I know this is late, but I have ran Winplan, EchoView and RandMax for several years from a thumb drive or copied files from one computer to another while I was playing with no issues. The only issue was that there is 4 XXXX.vbx that installed in the C:\Windows directory that needs to be installed in the WinPlan directory. I can't say anything about the other clients.
