    @ ZeroHour - did you ever manage to get the MSI done? Any chance of sharing it with us less able package builders?

    Thanks

    We have one at http://www.priory.e-sussex.sch.uk/do...s/audacity.zip Think you need to add some reg frags to the user type to allow LAME to work properly though. If you need them I can dig them out.

    Re: Audacity MSI needed

    I now have an MSI however you will need to make sure 4 registry keys get made...you can use the template I have posted and add the remaining keys or use somthing like

    http://www.desktopstandard.com/Polic...Extension.aspx
    (only available until sept 25th for free as M$ bought the company)

    this is very simple to deploy and you can deploy reg keys via group policy.

    if you pm me I can send you the msi I have created for audacity, but like I said you need to enter the 4 regkeys if you want to not have your students need to set the LAME dll file location (which is in the msi build in the audacity folder)

    If you dont create these reg keys the user gets prompted for the language and when you come to save/encode mp3's you will get promted for the location of the LAME dll file

    Create HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Audacity\Audacity\
    PrefsVersion REG_SZ 1.1.1r1

    Create HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Audacity\Audacity
    Version REG_SZ 1.2.6

    Create HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Audacity\Audacity\
    MP3MP3LibPath REG_SZ C:\ProgramFiles\Audacity\Plug-Ins\lame_enc.dll

    Create HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Audacity\Audacity\Local e
    Language REG_SZ en

    Re: Audacity MSI needed

    Audacity has a "silent install" mode - just run audacity.exe /verysilent and it will install - you could write a script which checks for (say) c:\program files\audacity and, if it's not there, runs the install process.

    You can then use the techniques above to add the registry keys or just add it to the script.

    The way I've done it is using the "Windows Installer Wrapper Wizard" but I can't find anywhere to download it now and I don't know if it can be freely distributed (it was free software but not public domain or open source).

    Re: Audacity MSI needed

    As someone mentioned earlier, it is possible to install Audacity to a central network location and run it across the network. We do this including the add ons. We only have to update it once whenever there is an upgrade. Quick, simple, it works. I wish all software was as easy as that!

    Re: Audacity MSI needed

    Created this vbs so that you can save sounds as mp3 not had chance to try it out yet tho.

    Set oshell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")

    sRegPath = "HKCU\Software\Audacity\Audacity\MP3\MP3LibPat h"

    sRegData = "C:\Program Files\Audacity\Plug-Ins\lame\lame_enc.dll"

    oShell.RegWrite sRegPath , sRegData , "REG_SZ"

    Set oshell = Nothing

    Re: Audacity MSI needed

    Yup this will set the right key for saving mp3's, however if it is a new user they will still get prompted for the language they are using upon first load, so if you create the other keys I listed above then then first start goes straight into the program...

    Our kids/staff can be fussy ...ie: I'd get calls like OMG what language do I choose, wont I break the system picking the wrong one? :P

    Re: Audacity MSI needed

    Ive got it running OK off a network share with mandatory profiles (although i need to update them so it doesnt ask every time to associate project files)

    2 small problems I get

    a) You get an error message saying a reg key couldnt be created, something about AUP, anyone know where this is?

    b)It seems to default to Microsoft sound mapper rather than the actual sound card in the PC. Im sure this could be changed with the profile too but is there any way to get it not to do this?

    Sorry to dig up an old thread:

    Which method are people finding the best for blasting out Audacity +Lame?

    At the moment we run the zip version off our app share, but it doesnt automatically pick up the lame encoder,requiring it to be specifyed on each machine.

    Is there a way around that?

    Sorry to re-digg it up but I have got the zip version, extracted it from the zip to our shared drive but when i click the exe or a shortcut i made to the exe it doesn't go, gives a error relating to persmissions on it, last time i checked I am the Administrator so can do what ever I want, is it anti-administrator for some reason?!

    Ive tryed everything to get the LameMP3 encoder to work.
    The regedits ive tryed dont appear to work unfortunatelly. .

    Could really do with that MSI file with Lame already configured/intergrated into Audacity.

    Like Boo, I have tried many things to get this stupid lame file to work with Audacity and it's just not happening, is there any way that the lame file can just be found without having to point to it every time ?
