I have the latest version of audacity on a windows 7 laptop- I have repeatedly downloaded lame for conversion of wav to mp3. I see lame in my programs but when I open the folder there is nothing there and of course audacity cant find it either- im no pro at computers- what am I missing?

Did you download the lame EXE file from [u]here[/u]?

Download the EXE file to your “downloads” or “temp” folder, etc. Then double-click to install LAME.
