    12= How to run JOSM from an USB stick (on a Windows system) =
    23'''Run JOSM on a "foreign" Windows machine without installation or a JAVA machine installed on it! '''
    34
    4 ''http://www.portableApps.com offers a method to install a JAVA machine on an USB stick, so you can run JAVA .jar files on a foreign machine without further installation.
     5''[http://www.portableApps.com portableApps] offers a method to install a JAVA machine on an USB stick, so you can run JAVA .jar files on a foreign machine without further installation.
    56Once this is installed on the stick, you can run a normal josm-tested.jar/josm-latest.jar with it. All personal files (like the settings, plugins) will be stored on the stick. You will need ~140MB free space on your USB stick.
