Hi all,

I've recently downloaded 2.0 in my mac mini core 2 duo 1,83 ghz 2MB ram

I've mounted the .dmg and i've copied it the folder in my apps.

I've launched the program and after 60 seconds the icon stay in dock firmly but i could access to te application only the first time.

after some test I quit the program and after that I cannot access to the program ( the icon is in the dock but does not respond....)

Can someone help me?

thank you in advance

Inside the Audacity folder, create a folder called "Portable Settings".
Using TextEdit, create a file with exactly this content:

Code: Select all
NewPrefsInitialized=1
[AudioUnits]
Enable=0
GUI=0
[VST]
Enable=0
GUI=0
Rescan=0


Save this file in the Portable Settings folder as "audacity.cfg".

Now try starting Audacity.
