What I recommend for portability reasons is that you keep the IO file and VEE programs separate. IO is defined on a a per machine basis since it is dependent upon how that particular computer is set up. Hence IO file is inherently non-portable.

To make you VEE programs portable be sure to NOT save IO with the program.

Downside ( there's always a downside! ) is that you need to make sure that the instrument aliases are the same in all your IO files. This is no big deal- just requires a little care.
This is, after all, what the instrument aliases are for in the first place.

Once you have this set up, then your programs will run on any on your machines with no mods.
