[Moderator note: this is the primary Audacity thread. View database entry]

----

What do you forumgoers think, should we replace the current Portable Audacity entry with John T. Haller's package? I understand we could simply point to the PortableApps.com version in the description, but since he just updated his (and it seems he'll probably continue updating it more often than the current entry) it'd be best to have his version take over and give a link to the current one in the description.

Now, decipher that paragraph and provide input.

Sorry Fluffy. I just did that without reading the forum first.

I typically prefer John's portable packages over others, since he appears to update them in a timely manner.

I have done exactly what you suggested and mentioned PortaSoft's version as an alterative.

No need for apologies - it seems like we were all sharing the same brain on this issue. :)

Has anyone tested Audacity Portable under Win7x64? It's not launching on my system. X-Audacity is working ok.

Audacity Portable is tested on Windows 7 x64 before release. I know Audacity Portable has additional features above X-Audacity including automatic directories for FFMpeg, LAME and VSTPlugins, but that shouldn't cause it not to work. The only other thing I can think of offhand is if your local machine has a corrupted/misconfigured Visual C++ runtime install on the local PC that is interfering with the VC runtimes set in side by side mode included in Audacity Portable. What happens if you try to run audacity.exe directly? For additional trouble-shooting, I'd recommend the official form here so other devs can help: http://portableapps.com/forums/support/ ... y_portable

I retested Audacity after having stepped away from it for some time and found it's come a long way. The whole thing seems faster, more responsive, and easier to use. Additionally, some minor interface changes also went a long way to bring the whole package together.

I am seeing folder written to C:\Users\<USER>\AppData\Local\Audacity\Session Data despite created the "Portable settings" folder.
The folder is empty, but man it's annoying.

I think this started with the latest version? Can anyone confirm?
