Audacity 2.0.6

hello everybody. I have windows 7 home premium 64 bit SP1 and I would like to test Audacity 2.0.6 but I want to know which parent holder is the good one for windows. thanks a lot for your answer and have a nice weekend. greetings.

p.s. I have already in my pc Audacity 2.0.5 but I would like to try the new one.

Do you mean “parent folder”, Edgardo?

We are hoping to release 2.0.6 within 24 hours or less, so you could wait and then install 2.0.6 into the same folder as 2.0.5. If you want to try 2.0.6 without replacing 2.0.5, it is simplest to download the zip file of Audacity Audacity - Browse Files at . Just extract the zip and run Audacity from the folder you extract to.

Quit 2.0.5 before running 2.0.6 or you will just open a new project window in 2.0.5.


Audacity 2.0.6 is due to be released very soon (the release candidates are currently being tested). When released, the recommendation will be to update your existing version of Audacity by installing 2.0.6 over the top of it.

If you wish to test the 2.0.6 release candidate without uninstalling your current version, download the ZIP version ( from here:
The zip file may be extracted anywhere convenient (for example, a new folder in your “Documents” folder).
To run Audacity, double click on the extracted audacity.exe file.
