...sorry, business as usual - somehow inconsistent, but after the third start, Audacity created %LocalAppData%\Audacity again. And in addition there's no way to change the language. Strange behaviour.

Current version is somehow stealth after configuring the temporary folder to point to something inside the program folder (Audacity doesn't accept the system temp folder) - the created "Audacity/SessionStore" folder in LocalAppData can then be deleted.
No entries in the registry any more (except Audio.. PropertyStore, but this applies to all programs with sound output and is not persistent)

Using Audacity Portable and folder is there after close.

I am seeing a blank folder created in C:\Users\\AppData\Local\Audacity
with nothing inside with latest version. Can anyone confirm?
