Cannot update to 2.03

I have a Crosley turntable with USB connection cord. My computer has Windows 7 OS. I saved Audacity via the CD provided - it is version 2.0. tried to update to the 2.03 latest version since I am having trouble hearing music on my computer being recorded from the turntable. I get the message: “could not download”. What might be the problem and do I really need to upgrade? Thanks for your assistance!

Upgrading is recommended,
Are you using the official download location -

Yes, I am using the website you mentioned and selection the one for Windows 2000, XP, Vista, Windows 7 and 8 since my computer runs Windows 7 OS.

The download that you want has a direct link on this page:

Near the top of the page:
Recommended Downloads - Latest Version of Audacity
Audacity 2.0.3 installer (.exe file, 20.3 MB, including help files) for Windows 2000/XP/Vista/Windows 7/Windows 8

I’ve just tested the link and it’s working OK, so if you still cannot download it, then it may be a security setting on your computer that is preventing the download.
