I am looking to upgrade audacity on a handful of clients in my environment to the latest release but I don’t want to touch each one individually to do it. We deploy the software through Microsofts SCCM tool using a batch script pointing to the exe. Does anyone know if there is a registry key or file in the Audacity directory that denotes the software version number? If I can locate that I can setup a detection method in SCCM to update the software automatically for all clients.
I don’t think you are going to find anything useful other than the .exe file itself. You can check with the developers here: Audacity dev
I wonder - Audacity is published on winget, so maybe something like winget-install/winget-autoupdate would yet you do automatic updates?
In each case, inside the
%appdata%\audacity\audacity.cfg, there’s a
[Version] Major=3 Minor=2 Micro=5
Additionally, the lastlog.txt in the same directory also shows what version was last used. Both of these methods require Audacity to be ran at one point though, I think.
