No. For an U3 package, you'll need an U3 stick to work properly. The U3 system will set some special U3 environment variables and that's the problem here.

So how are non-U3 portable applications produced for Windows? Are special builds done, or is the application otherwise induced to store its settings on the application medium rather than on the system disk or in the user's home directory?
