Is it possible to use texworks in a portable way?

I'm using miktex-portable, primarily locally installed on a hard disk 
(see the configuration info below), but I also would like to use a 
second installation on a USB-Stick. Unfortunaltely miktex-texworks 
stores some information in the windows registry. 
default-Encoding, default-Engine, font, ...)
Using one of the installations distorts the other, even lets the other 
hang during program start. After deleting the registry-entries the 
program starts again, but of course some preferences are forgotten.

----- configuration info -----
TeXworks version : 0.6.6 (MiKTeX) [r.24442ac0, 11.03.2021 11:03]
