Installing new version

I have V2.0.0 installed on WinXP. I see 2.0.1 is available, how do I install it ? Install over existing version or do I have to uninstal 2.0.0 first?

When you install 2.0.1 you should be offered the same directory to which you installed 2.0.0. This should be “Program FilesAudacity” (or "Program Files (x86)Audacity"if you are on 64-bit XP), but in any case if you do not change the installation directory that is offered, Audacity 2.0.1 will install over the top of 2.0.0.

If you are unsure, it’s safest to uninstall 2.0.0 then install 2.0.1. In that case, any extra plug-ins you added to the 2.0.0 “Plug-Ins” folder will be left behind and will still be available if you install 2.0.1 to the same directory as 2.0.0, or can be copied to the new 2.0.1 installation directory if you change it.
