Assuming it's Windows you can install Lazarus on another PC, put the whole Lazarus install dir in a zip-file, copy over to the target PC and unzip in exactly the same dir structure (including drive letter).
All posts based on: Win10 (Win64); Lazarus 2.0.10 'stable' (x64) unless specified otherwise...

Select the "other install" or something like that option while installing. This creates a more standalone version.

Use fpcupdeluxe to get FPC and LAZ combo you need. Let's say that you stored it to c:\Prg\Lazarus\TrunkAll\. Shortcut will be created and placed on your desktop. Copy shortcut to c:\Prg\Lazarus\TrunkAll\. Now parameterize your Lazarus, and install all components and libraries you need. Now take your directory TrunkAll, copy it to c:\Prg\Lazarus\ on your job pc, and use shortcut from TrunkAll dir to start Lazarus. It is portable enough and will work without problems.

Hey Hansvb,

Like Avra so kindly suggested you can use fpcudeluxe to install it on your Home PC and then transfer the folder to your Work PC.

But let me suggest another option: Cut one step, the one where you have to copy to the Wrok PC.

The fact is that fpcupdeluxe ALSO does not need to be installed.
When you navigate to the Release section on GitHub and download the latest release, it's a *.exe that needs no install, jut run it.

As long as you avoid Program Files, and the 64b one that I always forget, you can install Lazarus where ever you want and it won't trigger any work policy constraints.

It's also a plus that fpcupdeluxe makes is REALLY easy to setup cross-compiling and add some initial packages, like the Docking one to make Lazarus more 21st Century, ;)

Hope this helps!!

Cheers,
Gus
