    Is there any way to get UT2004 to run without it's registry entries? If you put the old UT's file directory on a thumb drive, it's 'plug and play', but UT2004 won't run unless you install it's registry entries. It doesn't really have much:

    Code:
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Unreal Technology]
    
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Unreal Technology\Installed Apps]
    
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Unreal Technology\Installed Apps\UT2004]
    [B]"CDKey"="XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX"[/B]
    "ADMIN_RIGHTS"="You need to run this program as an administrator, not as a guest or limited user account."
    "Folder"="D:\\Program Files (x86)\\Unreal Anthology\\UT2004"
    "NO_DISC"="No disc in drive.  Please insert the disc labeled 'Unreal Tournament 2004 Play Disc' to continue."
    "NO_DRIVE"="No CD-ROM or DVD-ROM drive detected."
    "TITLEBAR"="Unreal Tournament 2004"
    "Version"="1"
    "WRONG_DISC"="Wrong disc in drive.  Please insert the disc labeled 'Unreal Tournament 2004 Play Disc' to continue."
    "YEAR"="2004"
    
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Unreal Anthology]
    "I_UT2004"="D:\\Program Files (x86)\\Unreal Anthology"
    
    And the bold CD key line is actually the only one it needs.

    Is there any way around this?

    Theoretically, it's possible by implementing similar launcher various portable applications use that normally depend on several registry entries and other dependencies.
