Program files downloaded onto a 256MB pen drive

Can anyone tell me if I downloaded a program onto a pen drive is there a way I could install that program from the pen drive onto several computers via USB?

What do you mean download a program?

If you mean from a website then yes.

If you mean can you copy the relevant entry in the Program Files folder on a machine - then no.

what i mean is to download from the internet onto the pen drive then install from pen drive onto several different pc's.

If it's possible is it just a case of double clicking the setup file that would be on the pen drive and this would install in program files on the relevant pc?

Yes it is as simple as that.

I carry a thumb drive around with me with about 20 programs downloaded from the net - all the common Anti Spyware / Anti Virus / Registry cleaners and the like.
