Hi. I have Windows 8 and am trying to download 2.0.5 but my computer won’t let me. I clicked download and then run, but nothing happens. I got a message saying that I need permission to download the program. I have no idea what to do.
Try saving the EXE installer file to your hard drive instead of just downloading it and running it.
You cannot install Audacity unless you log in as administrator, or right-click over the downloaded audacity.exe and choose Run as Administrator.
If you do not have the administrator password you can download the zip file, right-click over it, choose “Extract All” then run Audacity from the folder you extract to. You won’t be able to install the zip version.
