In the instructions on how to compile Audacity, from Audacity/win/compile.txt, Step 3: Build wxWidgets/subsection 3.2/about the 4 patches is not clear. Do I just copy the folders Docs, Include, Interface and src in Audacity/win/wxWidgets_addition/wxWidgets-3.0.2 over to C:\wxWidgets-3.0.2? If I copy the folder Audacity/win/wxWidgets_addition/wxWidgets-3.0.2 over to C:\wxWidgets-3.0.2, it will create a folder wxWidgets-3.0.2 inside C:\wxWidgets-3.0.2. Please clarify.
Personally I always copy the patched files one by one to the correct place, but I "think" dragging the four folders you mentioned into "C:\wxWidgets-3.0.2\" would work too. I suspect the instructions may be wrong or unclear.
Thank you Gale for the clarification. Now you arouse my curiosity. The four patched files are in C:\Audacity/win/wxWidgets_addition with the extension .diff. Do I place these 4 files somewhere? Please tell me where they should go. in C:\wxWidgets-3.0.2
