Audacity needs lame-enc.dl -another Price Waterhouse error


I downloaded Audacity to a flash drive and then copied Audacity and installed it on to a laptop.

It installs but when I try to Export a file I’ve edited I get the error message…“Audacity needs lame-enc.dl”

I’m not sure what that means or where to find that file or how to “install” it into Audacity?

I’m running Windows 7 - 32-bit on a PC.

Thanks so much.

Download and run [u]Lame v3.99.3 for Windows.exe[/u]. That will install the Audacity version of LAME.

While you’re at it, you may want to install FFmpeg in case you need to import/export other formats that Audacity doesn’t natively handle.

Hi DVD Doug,

Thank you!

I didn’t get an email alert of your post so I checked back in and found your helpful post.

In my Profile it has a dot in the circle to accept email from members as well as administrators - not sure what went wrong.

Thanks again.
