Glad to see this long-awaited update. I have
2.1.2 installed with a mix of 2.1.3 alpha build files, and with custom shortcut keys defined.
What’s the best route to get 2.1.3 running? Install in a separate folder? I’d rather not install over 2.1.2 right now, just in case.
In which case I’d install it to a separate folder - as a QA tester I have many many folders with Audacity versions (going all the way back to 0.8 and 0.98b).
All work fine - but only one instance can be run at a time - so only one version at a time.

Ok, it’s installed in
Audacity 2.1.3´ folder. Also copied the lame_enc.dll file into Plug-Ins´ and made a folder `ffmpeg´ and populated that from the Zip. Seems the custom hotkeys are working just fine. Looks like it’s all set to go.
In a few days or weeks, I’d like to Uninstall 2.1.2 with alpha components (not beta) and Reinstall official 2.1.2 release.
Question: Just reinstall 2.1.2 in the original folder and forget about uninstalling? what about custom settings?
What does that mean? Are you running 2.1.2 out of a folder that also contains Audacity 1.3.?
Your settings are in Users<username>\AppData\Roaming\Audacity\audacity.cfg. Those settings don’t change unless you delete audacity.cfg or reinstall Audacity with “Reset Preferences” enabled.
There is no need to uninstall before installing into the same folder.

I have 2.1.2 in
**Program Files (x86)** \ **Audacity**´ folder with 2.1.3 alpha files.. and now running 2.1.3 out of
Program Files (x86) \ Audacity 2.1.3´ folder.
If you want to keep both 2.1.3 release and 2.1.2 release for now, I would clean up that 2.1.2 folder by installing 2.1.2 into it:

Everything is working ok with 2.1.3 so far (I think) and I’m intending to uninstall 2.1.2 which is in a separate folder.
However only 2.1.3 shows up
Programs and Features. How best to uninstall 2.1.2?
Run “unins000.exe” in the 2.1.2 folder.
