    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

    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.

    The .cfg is created on first run so run Audacity set your options and then just hunt it down in Application Data.

    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.

    regards
