Portable Audacity

Is it possible to assemble a portable version for Audacity?

Installing it every time I change computers or new Windows installs is really a pain.

Now I can't make Audacity to recognize mkv files, so I can import it and convert the DTS audio to AC3. Eventually I will find a way, but it's taking a time I could be using doing other things.

To make a portable version of Audacity for Windows:
  • Download the "Audacity 2.2.2 zip file" from here: https://www.audacityteam.org/download/windows/
  • Extract the Zip archive to your thumb drive (or wherever),
  • Open the extracted folder (you should see "audacity.exe" in there)
  • Create a new folder in there, and name the new folder "Portable Setting"
To run the portable version, double click in the "audacity.exe" file (you can also make a link to that file for easier access).
