Running WinUAE entirely from within Dropbox?

Is it possible to have WinUAE "installed" in your Dropbox-folder (to be accessible from any computer with my Dropbox-folder)?
I move between a few different computers and it would be very practical to skip manual installation/upgrading of WinUAE on all machines.

I don't see why not. That folder isn't actually a special virtual folder on a server somewhere, it's a normal folder that just gets sync'd by Dropbox every X minutes.

Use "portable" mode to keep all registry data in file (winuae.ini). Run once with -portable command line parameter or create empty winuae.ini in same directory as executable.
