A portable application can be run from a removable drive (USB flash drive, iPod, portable hard drive, etc) on any Windows computer without installation.
You will carry the program with settings on removable drive and don't modify settings on host computer.
On Vista and above turn off User Account Control (UAC) or run launcher as admin.

Hi Bernat, I've noticed a newer version of LAME (known to work with Audacity 2.x)
https://lame.buanzo.org/lame_v3.99.5.zip
I've not fully tested it but Audacity accepts it and, instead, refuses the current version (3.100)

Thanks for info and tests: post updated.

Hi Bernat,
I've been using this program for a while and love it. I've made portable version of qBittorent (https://www.qbittorrent.org) and works great with no problem.
The issue is similar to Mp3LibPath/FFmpegLibPath manipulation.
Changing download path is not possible with FileWrite or WriteINIStr using $EXEDIR\${APPDIR} which has similar results in audacity.cfg.
How do I change the path so it can be recognized as in audacity.cfg paths.

Great job as always.

Thanks
George

Sorry George, I forgot to join source.
I used StrRep to add \\ in paths but there is probably a better solution.

George said...

Working great!
As always I appreciate everything.
I keep learning something new every time. Keep up the good work.

THANKS AGAIN.

Hey Bernat, something is wrong with the new version 2.3.1. After installing, the ini file is made but after that, nothing happens.

Bernat said...

Tested working.

regards from Venezuela. The LAME MP3 encoding library is bundled in this version; sadly, that's not the case with the FFmpeg import/export library. it would be great if you could fix this issue. thanks in advance.

FFmpeg 32-64 bit added.
