Deploy audacity with lame encoder
Hi We need a way to deploy audacity wit the lame encoder ideally an msi?

probably easiest way to do it as an msi would be using winstall le on a referance pc and captureing the before/after state. Problem with audacity is iirc that the pointer to the lame codec is stored in hkey current ujser so needs adding to every user that logs in

Audacity MSI needed - take the last zip from tomscaper.

There's a nice gotcha - be aware that if you remote desktop into a machine to check it's installed ok, Audacity can (will?) crash ungracefully. You can then spend a while chasing your tail when it's actually installed fine.
I used an msi fwiw.

I didn't install it to the desktops, I installed it to a share and put the lame encoder there to. To make sure the lame encoder is discovered you just need to copy audacity.cfg to application data, I did this in the logon script. It's also worth changing the default quality to 16bit from 32bit to reduce disk usage, unless you have a reason to leave it.

I use audacity portable.
Deploy it to a machine in a folder (I use c:\apps\aud)
Add in Lame encoder
Do a test and make sure everything works.
Export c:\apps\aud back out to a network share and then build a script to deploy it clients.
