There is now an installer and zip for Pd-extended 0.43.  If you want  
to use Pd-extended 0.42 on a USB stick, then just use the installer to  
install it onto the USB stick, and it'll work anywhere.  That will  
look in the registry for config information, so it might not work well  
for you.

We are looking for testers of the new zip package, so give it a try:


Just unzip wherever, and then double-click the pd-extended.bat inside.
