    What is the issue here? You going to write code but can't copy to a drive?

    Thanks for the reply draceplace,
    I realize I should have been better with the specificity, I am working on learning java and as I learn I wanted to "follow along" as the tutorial progresses I will learn more and more because I am a hands on learner. I am using computers at my school to do so and on the desktops there is no jre or something on the pc because when I downloaded the eclipse zipped file, I extracted it to my flash drive so I could save my projects as I move from pc to pc and I wanted to know if there was a way to install it on the flash drive.
    Again thanks,
    Devpro

    It appears possible. I found these two articles that might get you started in the right direction
    CodeProject

    NetWorld

    Thanx but it appears to not recognize the jre located on the flash drive.

    Not really knowing what I'm talking about here(disclaimer!), the article(s) mention some special handling of the JRE folder and directing Eclipse to that folder. Also one article mentioned you needed to start Java first. Be sure and scroll all the way down to see the whole thing on CodeProject. There are also some comments that you should read at the bottom.

    If you followed those directions I would be tempted to ask the dudes that wrote those articles a specific questing explaining what did.
