Fail to replace Audacity. [SOLVED]

Help for Audacity 2.x.x on Windows.

ImageThis forum is for Audacity 2.x.x on Windows.

  • Please state which version of Windows you are using, the exact three-section version of Audacity from Help > About Audacity and whether you obtained the .exe installer or the zip.

  • Audacity 1.2.x and 1.3.x are obsolete and no longer supported. If you still have those versions, please upgrade at http://www.audacityteam.org/download/.
    The old forums for those versions are now closed, but you can still read the archives of the 1.2.x and 1.3.x forums.

The specified file can not be found.
Check if the path and file name are correct.
Is it just me? Previously, everything was fine.

You can only transfer individual files in a folder, and the entire folder can not be moved.

2. Try to replace folder (by the mouse) to the desktop.
3. And fail, see the picture.

Installed applications should not be manually deleted, you should uninstall them.

If you want a version of Audacity that can be run without being installed, get the ZIP version from here: http://www.audacityteam.org/download/windows/ and extract the contents of the zip archive to a location that you have read/write permission.

Please also note that "nightly" versions are not official releases and not intended for production work.

True, how to remove an old program, alpha version, except manually? It's not in the list.Why I can not restore the audacity from the trash can (Recycle Bin, корзины)? The same picture.

The Windows nightlies are ZIP files. Even if you extract them to Program Files it is not an "installation" that Windows will see (unless you are extracting into an earlier installation made using an EXE installer of Audacity).
